Hiring Auditors Who Can Think

Nthinkorman Marks, of the Institute of Internal Auditors, likes to hire auditors who can think.

You should too.

How does he do it?

First, he doesn’t look just at a person’s resume and years of experience (the artcile has a great ancedote about a guy who said he had 10 years of experience, but actually did not).

Second, he presents the interviewee with scenarios and asks how she would handle them.

Third, he evaluates her answers based on how well she can analyze a situation she has never encountered and describe an approach that makes sense.

Read Marks’ article here. For my own anecdotes and suggestions for interviewing auditors, read these:
