Any Internal Auditors on the forum?

Postby nick_the_guy » Fri, 16 Sep 2011 9:34 am

Hi, I'm an internal auditor living in Canada. I wish to work in Singapore for a couple years. I have family here and I've been here a few times (in fact, I'm here until next Tuesday on vacation).

In terms of myself, I switched to IA only a few years ago after spending 5 years doing general management in the motorsports industry. Despite having only 2 years of IA under my belt, I have a Canadian management accounting designation (CMA) and my CIA. I plan on having my CFE by the end of the year and I'll be writing the CISA exam in December (although I have no IT audit experience at the moment). Fluent only in English, have studied some Mandarin, Spanish and French but far far from competent in any of them.

Are there any internal auditors on the forum that can give some feedback about their experiences and job hunting tips? Expecting salary and benefits? Chances of getting a response when applying from out of country?

Look for a job you're qualified for, apply for it and if you get it, see if you get the work visa. Its as simple (or as difficult) as that. There are positions available, but the more qualifications / years of experience / languages you have, the better.

The recruitment firms publish salary surveys - take a look at those for what you would expect to earn.

But remember - living in a country and visiting a country are 2 completely different things...
