Making It Balance: a Guide to a Career in Audit for your Student

Explore the possibilities a career in audit provides

We know that talking to your high school student about their future career can be hard, and we’re here to help. Making it Balance takes you on a journey as three future auditors explore the exciting range of careers in audit and accounting (fueled by us here at Discover Audit). On this career exploration road trip, Da’Rell, Sobia and Lailani meet with leaders who began their careers in audit and accounting.

Filmed for the Roadtrip Nation public television series, this experience introduces a diverse group of young people—and TV audiences—to the wide range of paths in auditing and accounting while also working to dispel some of the common stereotypes tied to these careers. On the road, they learn that auditing is more than a job, it’s a career, that can open up many different doors in the future, from sports to music to technology.
