Hi Lily! I've worked in public accounting / internal audit for a little under 5 years. I think the most exciting part of working in this corner of finance is the diversity of projects / teams you get to work on. I consider public accounting a "sampler platter" of various company cultures, team environments, co-workers, etc. as you're constantly changing clients that you work with and teams that you're staffed on. Similarly, internal audit is also a "sampler platter" of various teams within a company, as you get to see behind-the-scenes of nearly every corner of a company. I'm a snoopy person by nature, so I love the variety and behind-the-scenes look my job offers.
Hope this helps!
