The Center for Audit Quality (CAQ)has announced their second annual "social media blitz" which highlights the benefits of an auditing career. The hashtag #AuditorProud will once again be shared on Thursday, September 22, and is part of the CAQ’s ongoing efforts to attract more potential candidates to the profession.

#AuditorProud will be shared across Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Snapchat in order to share professionals' stories such as why they chose an auditing career, what they love about working in the profession, and what makes them proud to be an auditor.

“Auditor Proud day gives us the opportunity to showcase the audit profession as an exciting and rewarding career path,” stated Deloitte CEO and CAQ governing board chair Cathy Engelbert. “In this time of rapid change, the audit profession is embracing and leveraging the latest in technology. We’re recruiting a new class of auditors armed with the skills to meet the evolving needs of investors and the marketplace.”  

“The CAQ is showing students the exciting opportunities a career in audit offers by enlisting auditors to tell their stories online,” said CAQ executive director Cindy Fornelli, in a statement. “Auditors play a crucial role in our capital markets by providing investors with important information about company finances. The profession is committed to finding innovative ways to attract the best and brightest to continue to serve investors and the markets.”
