The examination asked me to identify risks (i.e. entity-level risk, process risks) given a situation. It asked me to identify the 5 main frameworks of COSO and identify them in the circumstance provided. I was also asked how I would assess the situation and what appropriate action should I take. The interviewer also asked me to define Revenue as per IAS 18 and define deferred tax and give an example. Furthermore, they asked me to differentiate standard costing from the other costing methodologies. The interviewer also asked my greatest challenge on my previous job.

To be honest, I flunked this interview. I did not come from an internal auditing background. I came from external audit. CPAs do come from different backgrounds and industries even as an external auditor. They asked me to identify and explain the COSO Framework. It felt like I am going back to my theories in college. LOL. I was not able to enumerate everything. Only two out of five. The revenue definition as per IAS 18 and deferred tax was easy. However, I did forgot the different costing methodologies. Quite embarrassing to be honest. I get that it is mandatory to know these things but sometimes, we really cannot prepare for everything. For the greatest challenge, I answered him that it was the identification of fraud which was the most challenging as there were connivance between responsible employees. I discussed the step-by-step process and what happened to those involved. The interviewer kept on pressing a very detailed explanation on this. Overall I think the interview focused too much on the theoretical and technical side of internal auditing rather than the skills, experience, and what the applicant can offer. Technical Skills can be learned easily by book. However, in my opinion, they didn't consider the Soft Skills of the applicant honed through years of experiences. The interviewer was very respectful though. Less
