The two main types of auditing jobs are that of a government auditor and internal auditors. Government auditors work for federal, state or local governments to ensure that the income and outcome of the money is both appropriate and legal. Internal Auditors work with businesses and organization to look for any issues that would lead in inefficiency or any illegal acts.

Computer skills play a large role in audit work. They allow auditing to be more precise, efficient, and timely. Generally an audit job is self-employed.
