    Why do you want to be a Senior Auditor?

      How to Answer

      This question is a way for the interviewer to find out a little bit about what makes you tick. Be honest and direct - don't give a phony answer that the interviewer will see through. Try to tie the roles and responsibilities of an auditor to your background.

      Brian's Answer

      "Since I was young, I have always liked math and have been good with numbers. I took an accounting class in high school and really enjoyed it - the concepts came naturally to me. As I researched careers in accounting, auditing really appealed to me because it is almost like being an accounting 'detective'. Working as a staff auditor the last two years was a great way to test the waters, and I look forward to continuing to grow in an exciting career."

      "Audit as a subject has always enticed me because it covers traits such as questioning my mind, being inquisitive, analyzing financial statements, and creating or designing improved processes for clients. Moreover, I like to conduct research on the accounting principles and standards set forth by authoritative guidance. I believe the role of a senior auditor will help me master these skills."
