External you are performing the audit as an independent 3rd party and issuing an opinion based of the testing. Internal you can be doing a wider range of auditing, from solely coordinating the external audits to performing non-regulatory based audits of security/infrastructure/etc.

External IT audit primarily focuses on SOX while IT internal audit expands from the SOX world into other regulatory areas

Depends on the industry, but some examples. NERC CIP, PCI, GXP, GDPR, etc..

Hi there. I've been working at the same company for ten years. I've moved through multiple roles—from support to success to team management to QA and now to product manager—and it just doesn't feel right.

What I'd really like to do is get out of SaaS, and maybe tech altogether. But when I search for suggestions on how to do that, all I find are posts on how to break IN to tech.

Has anyone left the tech industry? What was your path to do it? Did you have to take a huge pay cut?

I sometimes think, this app is bit stressful. Mostly 90% of the people are showing their success here. The one who are struggling to get even a single offer may feel like he/she is not even in the race of job holders. Somebody discussing here of having more than 5 offers in hand.Some are discussing on negotiation with >6 companies.
This creates unnecessary pressure to the colleagues who are trying literally hard to get one switch.

I hope people soon should share their struggle & success both.
