Audit Work in audit involves checking accounting ledgers and financial statements within corporations and government. This work is becoming increasingly computerized and can rely on sophisticated random sampling methods. Audit is the bread and butter work of accounting. This work can involve significant travel and allows you to really understand how money is being made in the company that you are analyzing. It's great background!

One can assume because of the nature of the position that one know the audit field and have some experience because the listing does not state that there is any on the job or “other” training. So I concur that experience but not degree is necessary.
