In the context of globalization and the impact of the Industrial Revolution 4.0, the demand for financial services such as accounting and auditing is constantly increasing, bringing countless opportunities for financial professionals. Auditors are well-trained and equipped personnel with the necessary skills, knowledge and qualities, therefore, the opportunities for development are immense.

However, auditing is among professions with the greatest work pressure and a massive workload, which requires many skills and qualities to handle. Sometimes, dedicated auditors are inclined to work day and night to keep up with such workload. Therefore, despite realizing the opportunity for success and the values that one can contribute to the economy and to the community, many auditors still give up on their dreams from the very first days.
