Suggestions from an experienced auditor

Chhum Mida, a senior manager of the internal audit department of Singapore Banking Corporation Ltd (SBC Bank), provides some suggestions and tips on becoming an auditor.

Mida said, “Confidence and commitment are the key factors to starting this career.” She explained that no one on the planet is born with knowledge and a fancy and well-paid job. Success comes from commitment to fight through any obstacles and pairing confidence with real ability.

The 32-year-old auditor said: “There are no easy jobs especially the job of an auditor. It requires us to study every day about different subjects and the workload is large, which could make us feel stressed and unhappy. Therefore, in order to be a successful auditor, we need to love what we are doing.”

Base on her college experience, she said those who want to be auditor can major in finance and banking, accounting and finance or auditing to start their career.

“Through working in the auditing field for nearly 10 years, an auditor needs to be patient, reasonable, responsible, good at problem solving, good at communication and good at decision making,” she said.

The expert in auditing stressed that the ultimate purpose of the auditing profession is to improve our working institution and to assist our colleagues in working. It is necessary to make judgments and decisions by using critical thinking and with concrete evidence.

Chhum Mida’s final advice was, “Those who want to be auditors should set clear goals, know their weaknesses and strengths and especially never give up on things that they love.”
