Exposure to Different Lines of Business
One of the coolest parts of auditing is the fact that you have the opportunity to experience what it’s like to work in so many different industries as you’re meeting with lots of clients. You’ll learn quickly that every field works differently, and because of that, no two days will ever be alike.
You Build a Diverse Professional Network
Think about it: As an auditor, not only will you get to connect with people on your team, but your work also exposes you to people from all different industries and fields. You will get to spend time gathering the information you need for your audits and conducting your analyses while you meet new professional and make tons of new friends.
You Get Top Secret Clearance
Because companies are providing you with sensitive information and giving you access to their finances, technology, and other important assets, you get to have clearance that most people who actually work for those companies don’t even get. Organizations know that this access is crucial to having a successful audit.
It’s a job in high demand
As long as there is business to be done, there will be a job for auditors. Experts say the number of jobs for accountants and auditors will grow 11 percent from 2018 to 2026, faster than the average for many other occupations.
