It takes someone special to be an auditor. It takes someone with a magnifying-glass eye for evaluating procedures and financial transactions. It takes someone well-steeped in compliance and company policy who’s not afraid to speak up to suggest improvements. It takes someone with the skills to plan, coordinate, perform, and report—often all at the same time. You’ve already got what it takes to be an auditor. At Nelnet, we’ll give you what it takes to be extraordinary.
