    Are you open to travel with this position?

      How to Answer

      The topic of travel will almost certainly come up during your interview. Many large firms send their auditors out in the field for a good portion of the year. Even smaller boutique firms require several overnight trips a year. Given this, be prepared to articulate how much travel you are comfortable with (for example, 25%, 50%, etc). Most job descriptions will include the expected amount of travel. The interviewer is gauging whether you are a candidate that is willing and able to meet the travel requirement, so try to align your answer with the expectation of the role.

      Brian's Answer

      "I am definitely open to travel. I saw on the job description that travel is estimated to be 25%-50%, which I am comfortable with. Since I am still growing in the profession, I think traveling would be a fantastic opportunity for me to immerse myself in the role and learn as much as possible from my colleagues."

      "Yes, definitely I am willing to travel. I remember this job description mentioned about estimated 25% of the travel during the year. I think traveling, meeting different people, and learning from different perspectives help one to have a broad mindset which is an important aspect of conducting audits."
