CFO Interview Questions

"Candidates are hired for a CFO position for the wisdom that they have gathered in the finance world through the years. Thus, an interview will likely be centered around how you have previously handled a wide variety of investors, what your strategies or tactics are like, and how you have turned companies and teams around to become successful. In addition, companies will like to see that you are interested and informed about the industry that you will be applying your financial knowledge to, so be sure to do some research on their products beforehand and how they are relevant to your life."
