Auditors are a type of accountant in charge of verifying the financial records of companies. They analyze the bookkeeping and records of a company and compare them with the records of banks, creditors, and others who deal with the company. There are two type of auditors–internal and external. Internal auditors work for one company, examining and evaluating their finances to make sure it’s running efficiently. External auditors work for public accounting firms or are self-employed. They are contracted by businesses, industries, and government agencies to provide an outside expert opinion on their finances. To become an auditor, you’ll need a bachelor’s degree in accounting.
