3. What are some of the ways that you can show professionalism when out on an audit assignment?
How to Answer
In public accounting (as well as many other service-based professions), showing professionalism while interacting with clients is essential. The interviewer is gauging how much awareness the candidate has.
" It is extremely important to display professionalism when we are out in the field conducting audit procedures at our client's place of business. First and foremost, I know that I must look the part by adhering to the appropriate dress code. For some clients, a suit is appropriate. For others, business casual attire. Secondly, I know I must act professionally. This means speaking respectfully to all personnel, whether it is the company's CFO or a personal assistant. I shouldn't take personal phone calls or play music loudly. As a general rule, I shouldn't do or say anything that would harm our firm's reputation."
