Partner, Americas Professional Practice – Audit
I lead a team that develops and provides guidance on the use of tools and technology in our audits.
Day to Day
About 80% of my time is focused on internal projects where my team and I develop audit methodology tools and enablers to help our people in the field perform quality audits. The other 20% is spent serving clients. So, a typical day comprises elements of both of these roles. For example, today I read about innovative technologies that my team is working on, then spent time on client questions for a large global account.
Advice for Getting Started
Here's the first step for college students
Start building your network and developing relationships as early on as possible. One way to do that is through an internship, even if it's not 100% tied to your field of interest, because it will give you experience and relationships you can build on.
