Auditor jobs are crucial to many businesses. They are employed in many different industries across small to large businesses. Successful auditors have skills in auditing, accounting, internal controls, and financial reporting. They often work in-house for one company or can be employed as consultants to work for numerous clients.
Education for Auditor Jobs
To apply for auditor jobs, candidates will want to have a bachelor’s degree and perhaps an advanced degree in accounting. Over half of auditors graduate with a degree in accounting. The remaining majors are a relatively equal mix of business administration, business and commerce, economics, and finance.
Auditors are employed across many different industries as well as in both small and large businesses. The accounting industry is 2 – 3 times more popular for auditors than any other industry. However, the management consulting, financial services, and hospitality industries are also good places to find auditor jobs.
One other consideration for graduates who are seeking employment is job location. New York is one of the most favorable cities for graduates to work as auditors. Chicago, Houston, Dallas, and Los Angeles all offer their own unique set of attractions to students.
