Auditors specialize in reviewing and advising companies in regard to the legality and legitimacy of their financial accounts. They may give advice on potential cost savings and risk mitigation and prepare taxes and reports. A natural affinity with numbers, a strong eye for detail, and the ability to understand business needs are key to success in an auditing career. A bachelor’s or master’s degree is required, with the emphasis on a masters degree in accounting. A CPA (Certified Public Accountant) certification is also a requirement here.
