Is it possible to transfer from audit to forensics (accounting) at a manager level? Also, how difficult is it to transfer and what can I do to increase my chances?

Much easier (and common) to make the transition at staff or senior level. We’ve had several in the past couple years. At Manager, I imagine you need a good business case and there needs to be a need on the Forensics side. Frankly, there are a lot of managers already, so you might have to be flexible in terms of location.

Thank you so much! Can I ask you one more question? I will try to get my CFE - is there anything else I can do to increase my marketability? If I learn some database program languages would it help my case? (I’ll probably join the accounting side tho)

CFE would surely not hurt - although it’s a somewhat pointless certification, it would help your business case. Also yes programming languages I’m sure would help your overall attractiveness but it’s not necessary for the investigations & compliance team

Left my first job after just shy of two years because I was bored. Have been at my current job for about half a year and it’s a great resume builder but an absolute horror story (long hours, unreasonable clients, tons of weekend work that’s not worth the pay). If I left in a few months, at the 10 month mark, would that significantly hurt my chances of getting a strong exit opportunity? I can’t imagine staying here for the full year but I don’t want to blow my chances at leaving for a cool job

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!
