I have worked in public accounting as an auditor. The companies I audited are either government or utilities. After I was burned out and tired of the political crap, I worked as an internal auditor for 2 years. To be honest, I feel like I learned something, but not like in general accounting. After working in an internal audit, I moved on to my current position as a retail general accounting. I was originally hired to record sales but moved on to FA.
