Accounting & Auditing Careers
Accountant-Auditors may perform a variety of assignments -- operational audits of various county departments, hands-on accounting tasks, prepare complex financial reports, review and analyze accounting transactions, as well as provide consulting services on a wide variety of fiscal and operational matters.
