My feeling is generally there's more jobs out there for regular financial auditors since it's such a 'generalist' role. Maybe CIO route? I recently joined a small consulting firm as part of their PCI/security team and became a QSA. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. A busy week for IT Audit is a lot less busy than financial audit on a public client from what I've heard.

Can you describe your week to week experience? Hey man, curious as to what you do exactly as an IT consultant. But I really doubt the expertise of big 4 IT audit helping to prepare you for that. Switched from Big 4 IT audit to eGRC consulting. let me know if you have specific questions. Did you have prior IT experience? (B4 in a fairly large metro area) Some people traveled a lot, especially senior managers. As to 'IT Audit Life' it mostly depends on your client base. I'm enjoying the work a lot more, and I'm now on the information security track (mgr of info sec, director/vp of info sec, ciso, etc.).

You really just need to identify a position you want to get and look for a company that's willing to hire you based on the skills you have from being an auditor. What firm are you at/what firms are the big players in that space? Seems like IT audit is what you make of it. Auditing is an endless cycle that could get tedious over time.

Posted by 3 years ago. People generally don't leave IT audit to eventually be controllers. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast.

The main tracks for exit opportunities seem to be internal audit, project management, and security. Would you be able to describe what sort of exit opportunities do exist for IT Audit?
