Competencies & Career Level

The need for new or sharpened skills is a constant throughout any career, not a compartment that can be closed. Reskilling and upskilling will be an ever-present part of professional development, whether your internal audit skill level is awareness, applied knowledge, or expert.

As stated, career development is a divergent journey, not a linear path. As long as new risks arise and obstacles, or opportunities, come between internal audit and organizational value and success, there will be a need to know something new.

Define It. Demonstrate It.
