Any advice on transitioning into forensics? I’m in audit now and want to make a good case for a transfer. I’m not sure what the other side is looking for. I will have my CPA license soon if that helps

2nd year forensics consultant. CPA will definitely help. Honestly idk if there’s a specific trait they’re looking for - you learn most of everything as you join the team (like everyone else). I think they key is just networking with the forensic team (specifically the partners to get them to like you) and showing your desire to be in forensics.
