Hello! I would like to ask if any of you guys have experience in Risk advisory and what are the career prospects for internal audit. And also how it compares with external audit.
If u start from internal audit, it'll be hard to move out to external audit or other finance roles. If you start from external audit, you can move into other roles more easily, including internal audit.

Hmm if you go to black's website, under 'Services' you can see that under Consulting, they only have Human Capital, Tech & S&O.

Hi guy I would like to have some input, I'm going to black firm for interview for winter intern. What are the chances that they will accept me (I'm from private Uni) and usually what questions would they ask?
Thanks a lot.

From my personal experience, I wasn't tested on technicals at all, just fit questions. Do take note that this was for summer. My peers who went for should interview told me no technicals too. But I think to be safe, prepare yourself well in both aspects and it shouldn't be an issue. Plenty of SIM students in big 4 audit
