Fraud Examiners, Investigators, and Analysts


Fraud examiners, investigators, and analysts will continue to be needed to help identify and solve cases of fraud and recommend methods for fraud prevention. The Department of Labor predicts average employment growth, of between 5 to 9 percent, through 2026 for general financial specialists employed in the United States. The field of private detectives and investigators, which works closely with and may include fraud examiners, investigators, and analysts, is expected to have 10 percent employment growth through 2026, faster than the average. There will always be people looking to commit fraud and other crimes, and companies will need the expertise of examiners, investigators, and analysts to help them gather and analyze evidence and, if needed, testify in court hearings for fraud cases. Fraud examiners with certification, prior work experience, and strong computer software skills will have the best job prospects.
