I am an IT staff auditor with two years of experience. I have an interview coming up at a f500 company. They put the pay scale between $69000 and $99000 for this role. What should I ask for if they ask me how much compensation I am looking for? TIA.

Newly promoted Snr Auditor (~90k) getting leads from recruiters for Internal Audit / GL Accountant / Revenue Specialist / Mgmt Consulting. Compensation appears comparable (~100k) but the consulting position bonus can go upwards of 40% supposedly. Mostly looking to leave for better WLB. Wondering which offers best career advancement and exit opps a couple yrs down the road. Currently mostly remote but these positions would be hybrid (3 days in office). Thanks

Salaries for auditors vary depending on industry, education, level of experience, and location. Wages are steady, with the highest salaries seen in the Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. Salary ranges are higher for those registered as a chartered accountant. Salary ranges are also higher for those with more experience, though the starting salary of an auditor is still higher than the average Canadian. Auditors within the banking or insurance industries have the highest salaries.
Your compensation as an auditor will, in most cases, be results-based. There are still things you can do to improve your chances of a raise, though. Earning a Master’s degree in Accounting or CPA qualification are a couple examples of industry-standard skills that will not only help you in your current role, but also qualify you for higher-paying senior or supervisory roles. Your pay can also vary depending on where you work. Landing an auditor job at one of the big 4 accounting firms (Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG, PwC) is highly competitive, but also highly rewarding in terms of compensation. Similarly, positions with your provincial or the federal government are very hard to come by, but offer excellent benefits including a pension and generous time off.
Before trying to negotiate a higher salary, compare your current earnings to other auditor jobs. You may find your salary is competitive, in which case, you’ll need to make a merit argument for why you deserve more. This shouldn’t be too hard, given the nature of the work you do. Document and present any numbers that will help sell through your request for more, whether it’s a high accuracy/low error rate in your audits, or a high success rate in spotting fraud or irregularities. If you learned any skills, gained qualifications, or completed big projects, be sure to point this out.
