Risk Assurance

Hi guys, I’m about to get started in advisory at the Charlotte office. My degree is comp sci so I’m more on the tech side, any idea of what I should expect or tips for getting started?

Honest advice? Define your exit strategy in 2 years or less. With a comp Sci background you do not want to be pigeon holed into IT Audit

Probably not a firm thing, more of a practice thing. To be honest risk assurance isn't really ideal for product management but you can pivot at the senior level, gain some soft skills and experience then pivot from there

The best things new hire can do is take intense notes, ask questions, listen closely to instructions, and take criticism and coaching well. If you are coachable, you will do well. Good luck!
