In charge of internal audits for a company, auditing directors review and assess business and financial risks to make sure they are in line with laws and look out for ways a company may be wasting resources.

What's great: Being able to jump right in and assess any part of a company can be challenging, but the variety means that every day is different. "Instead of us being the guys looking for trouble, we're thinking of where we want to go as a company," said auditing director Kathryn Birn. --E.F.
