Risk Assurance/Enterprise Risk Services/Internal Audit

Hi all,

I was looking up internships for the Big4 and I came across the Internal Audit section. Does anyone have any experience into what the internal auditing team does? Is internal auditing harder to get an internship in than external auditing? Which one is better in terms of exit opportunities, career growth?

Thanks for all the help.

    When you are going for a job, you have to determine if it will be a right fit for you. When you are getting interviewed by them, they will determine if you are a right fit for them.

    Don't determine your career based on "exit opportunities", Please. A good job is where you will learn a lot of stuff that you are actually interested in. And it's really funny you are asking about "exit opportunities" when you haven't even obtained the job yet.

    "And it's really funny you are asking about "exit opportunities" when you haven't even obtained the job yet."

    It seems like a legitimate question to me, especially in accounting where the first few years of your professional career can have a profound impact.

    ^Point taken. However go ahead and ask about "exit opportunities" to a recruiter or his interviewer.


    Yep.
