I recently transitioned from Finance to Internal Audit. While I think this job is perfect for what I want during this stage of my career I feel like theres a stigma. Like this holiday during family zoom calls I'll tell relatives I stwrted a new job during WFH and when I mention it is Internal Audit I get mildly disgusted looks or "oh boy, I hate auditors" responses. Since the holiday season is almost over can you share how you respond to that? Or do you tell people you work "in compliance"?

I try to follow up with that but if I'm in an "elevator pitch" (quick explanation) situation verus a "cocktail party" situation (I have the time for more details) it os difficult.

How are you liking the transition to internal audit? Looking to do the same.

@EY I just felt like I hit a learning plateau. My area of finance was one of the smallest in the company so I wanted to use my time in IA to expand my knowledge to other areas of the company. Will I spend the remainder of my career in IA or eventually transition back to finance? Who knows but I am enjoying my time right now.
