Fraud and Forensics

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

Forensics loves people from audit. You are trained in workpapers, you know the rigors of the job, and you understand financially statements. If you like a work program, and doing the same thing over and over it isn’t for you. So tell them you like public accounting but want something without the standard work program, that you like solving puzzles, that you want to expand your view of financial analysis. Get on the web site and read about what they do. It is tricky because audit hates to lose people, especially a great staff person, but forensics only wants to star performers. The politics can be tough. Contact a forensics staff, have lunch with them, see if it is what you want. If it is, go to your senior manager and HR and talk to them about it.

Is anyone else having this issue? Since COVID in June, I have had so many unemployment requests that are fraudulent. We report to our state, and I am getting requests for employees that had no change in pay/hours (white collared* workers) that when I ask if they filed the answer is always no. Last week, I had an executive that had a false claim.
