I want to be an auditor

Chhum Chansophea, a fourth-year student at the Economics and Finance Institute majoring in accounting and finance, said that she wants to become an auditor in the future.

“I’ve liked the auditing profession since the first time I started to learn about it in an auditing class in year three at my school,” said Chansophea.

She thought that being an auditor could help improve and broaden her knowledge. “According to what I have learned, an auditor needs to keep him/herself up to date with knowledge because the job requires not only to have the knowledge in the field where he/she works, but also the knowledge outside the field in the surroundings environment,” she said.

The auditor-wannabe adds: “The number of people who work as auditors in Cambodia is not that high, but the job market of this field is wide open. Thus, it is a good decision to aim for this career and it would be great if I can reach my dream job.”
So what should Sophea do in order to become a qualified auditor?
