    How do you keep up with the latest developments in auditing standards?

      How to Answer

      This question is to see if you take the initiative to stay current on the latest accounting developments. If you are a CPA, talk about how you use mandatory continuing education requirements to stay up to date on the latest trends and regulations.

      Brian's Answer

      "I stay up to date in various ways. First, I subscribe to e-newsletters from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants for auditing standards updates and the Financial Accounting Standards Board for updates to generally accepted accounting principles. Additionally, since I am a CPA, I stay up to date with new standards with continuing education courses. I try to select courses that align nicely with the roles and responsibilities of my current position."
