Go on Reddit and search “IT Audit” and see what people in the career have to say about it. I started in Risk and didn’t mind it, but it is not for everybody.

Just to add onto this, I work in tech risk but I don’t do internal audit (and i avoid them like hell). I briefly worked for an internal audit consulting firm before EY and I can conclusively say that I was dying of boredom. External audit is the way to go if you’re going to do it.

It’s boring

The kinds of questions that you will receive are likely around the typical bio Q’s regarding your experience and interest in the position. Any experience surrounding internal controls testing, training staff, and reviewing work. Depends greatly on the level you’re interviewing for as well. You’ll want to just brush up on testing approaches and anecdotal stories of your past client work.

Tech Risk and Internal Audit are two separate groups…

That’s not true - for tech risk there’s a case study

What are your success stories about succession planning? I was hired as a lateral to work on/help sustain a retiring partner's book of business.

I don't want him to feel pushed out, and have a lot to learn from him, but I do want to help/plan handoff of work. Interested in guidance for how to have these conversations!
