What is beneficial to include on a resume? Should I include the number of misstatements/control deficiencies I’ve found, market cap of clients, and average chargeable hours per year?

Market cap of clients, yes. # of Control deficiencies found, no. You can say you did tests of controls, SOX compliance, whatever other term you used, and even say you documented control deficiencies. But don't say you identified 32 control deficiencies please!


Please include number of control findings and misstatements. Pleeease.


Tô be clear GT1 just wants to see your resume, laugh at it, and throw it away

Lol now I really wish I kept my count of audit adjustments and control deficiencies.
