If All Else Fails, You Can Still Become an Internal Auditor

What's your career been like so far? Has it been a struggle? Are you slow to catch on? Not the sharpest knife in the drawer? Have trouble getting along with people? Just need something that has zero sex appeal and fair compensation? Great! All you need to do become internal auditor:

No list of unsexy banking jobs would be complete without internal audit – and right now in Asia these number crunchers are in demand. A talent shortage and competition for candidates are driving salary increases as high as 20% to 30% for those who change companies, according to Ben Batten, country general manager at recruiters Volt in Singapore. And you don’t need to be at a bank in Asia already to get a job – Big Four auditors and overseas-based job seekers are often considered.
“It can be a fairly dry role and lives up to its unglamourous reputation in that respect,” said Batten. “What many overlook, however, is that it’s an ideal training ground for candidates to progress into more senior management roles. You have unparalleled opportunities across the bank – developing relationships – that others in more mainstream teams don’t get access to.”
It's not desperation, it's security!
