Hi All! I’m currently working as a Business Risk Supervisor for a large audit/consulting firm but considering switching since my firm doesn’t have a large fraud and forensics presence. Does anyone have any recommendations on firms to look into? I’d also be open to speaking with someone in the industry to get an idea of what to expect. Thanks!

Well all of the Big 4’s have those service offerings, as do many mid-market and niche firms (like FTI).

Might depend on where you’re located though

It’s pretty common during slow periods at the Big 4 to be loaned out. It can be audit, internal audit, deal advisory, etc. whatever it takes to get billable hours.

I was wondering if the review course “CPE Self Study Course” for the CFF was enough preparation to study and pass the CFF exam. The CFE review course was enough and like if you get a question wrong it explains it well so that when it comes up in a different way in the real exam you can still get it. But when I saw the outline for the CFF material and there seems to be a lot of topics so I was wondering if the review course was sufficient considering this exam is also multiple choice. Thanks!
