Perhaps the prevailing belief is that the older generation in their 30s to 40s, who dominate the audit industry, require fresh perspectives and youthful energy for tasks like vouching. This could explain the push for younger talent.

This shift may be causing anxiety among older professionals in their 40s and 50s, who fear a lack of younger individuals entering the audit industry.
I have work with many interns from the local u, including sit. I agree they are all very fine ppl with quality. It is a shame that audit internship dont really challenge them or is meaningful in the first place. They are ask to do vouching, print wp, do admin work. whats more funny i think they perform better than the experienced associate and senior from xxxx. I think everyone know. When intern lead the team guiding the EA is funnier...

Im currently in technical dept, ex auditor/tax.
