Hi there,

I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of reference to “ticking” for first-year auditors - I wondered if this is a term that can actually be used in an application form/interview, or if it is regarded as slang/actually has derogative implications, and should be referred to as something else?

Thanks very much,


Yeah, I have the same question! I don’t know what to write for what I’ll be doing day to day for the summer internship (audit and tax). I’ve researched it and written a bit…but nothing close to 100 words!


Good question, I wasn’t sure about this myself, but I used it on an application form recently which was accepted so I’d guess it’s probably ok.
