Path to IT Auditor from Support Analyst CISSP OR CISA

Hello everyone,

I am curious what you would recommend certificate wise to break into IT Auditing field for a person with my background. Finance Degree with 5 years in user facing Support Analyst role at large Fortune 500 firm, currently the singular support person in my office.
Holding Net+, Sec+ CCNA

CISA seems like the obvious choice but the registration deadline for Dec 2014 CISA just closed icon_sad.gif. Would earning the CISSP be attractive enough for employers to bring me on as an entry level IT Auditor until I can earn the CISA in June 2015?
I would love to be in an IT Audit role before June 2015.

    I would say no offhand CISSP is targeted at another part of the field. It certainly wouldn't hurt as you move up though. If you're already in the company I'd suggest you ask someone from that department preferably the IT manager. You'd be surprised how often people land what they want by just asking.

    Thanks GAngel. Unfortunately my company does not have this type of position. Though, you're right. Asking never hurts.
