I have been told by a few people now that you only work in auditing if you can't get a job in any other accounting firm/specialties. Can anyone confirm if there is any truth to this?

Audit is something that has a lot more job openings than a lot of other accounting "specialisations" so many people apply for it as they believe they'll be unable to get into the more "popular" specalisations. Longer term however audit is considered/has a lot more exit opportunties so I feel that if people are thinking longer term (career wise) then more people would be willing and happy to get into audit.

Disagree wholeheartedly as an audit practitioner.

Depending on which sector you're working in and which industry group you're covering, the role can be quite varied and draw on lots of other disciplines. It also requires a different skillset to learn/challenge rather than just execute.
