What does an Auditor do?
Auditors are responsible for tracking the cash flow and accounts of companies to ensure that they are being recorded and processed correctly, that assets are protected through appropriate control measures, and that financial records meet legal standards. Auditors can work in both the public and private sector as an internal audtor, an external auditor, or an independent auditor.
Most auditors have a Bachelor's degree in accounting or finance. Additionally, many auditors also have a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) credential, which is obtained by passing a national exam and a completing a minimum number of college coursework hours. Auditors need to have a keen eye for detail, a strong ability to work under pressure, and a knack for problem solving.
