Thinking Skills for Auditor and Financial Management Jobs

Stock ticker on telephone

Competition for best and brightest of the financial services talent is intense. But the biggest challenge for companies is to build a team of the highly skilled individuals who have the complex combination of strong critical thinking skills and personal mindset attributes that predicts success in the industry.

Critical thinking skills are in demand in the finance and audit fields

It’s not enough for an analyst or auditor to understand an organization’s objectives, structure, policies, processes, internal controls, and external regulations. Far more fundamental qualifications are the ability to analyze data, to assess risk, problem solve, identify opportunities and communicate effectively. A professional mindset hallmarked by integrity, focus and objectivity is as important as learned skills to identify process weaknesses, inefficiencies and operational issues.

Recent job descriptions for top financial firms describe the need for analytical skills, professionalism, self-starting approach and attention to detail. Fast thinkers and learners are needed to learn risk management skills.

This is what Insight Assessment does.

Our online tools are an easy and cost-efficient way to find and to develop the best talent. Many products have recently started claiming to measure more than skills, but Insight Assessment has mastered the complementary measurement of thinking skills and mental disciplines for over 30 years.
