If your team notices anything not quite right, you’re the detective they call. As audit manager for a regional firm, you and a team review a client’s financial statements and processes for accuracy and proper procedures. You have to get to the bottom of any irregular information that your staff uncovers. You deal with clients in an area of your expertise, such as entertainment or real estate. And they’re pretty big companies, so any financial errors could be devastating to their business. Sound like a lot of pressure? That’s why they pay you the big bucks.
