I recently joined a national CPA firm as an experienced auditor. So far, I've been doing well with the non-profit clients. The time has come to branch out to commercial clients, which I have never done before. My strategy is to work on the clients that are the easiest audit so that I set myself up for a win. Please consider these industries that I can audit and rank them in order of difficulty


1. Technology

2. Finance

3. Energy/Oil

4. Manufacturing

5. Healthcare

6. Distributors (industrial machinery)

7. Restaurants

8. Food products


It doesn't have to be too specific. Even splitting these 8 into 2 groups (hard vs easy) would be helpful to me. Thanks in advance.
