"When hiring a controller, a company will look for candidates who have the business mindset, accounting experience, and essential soft skills to oversee the entire accounting department. Before interviewing for a controllership, prepare to answer questions not only about your knowledge of accounting, but also about your management strategies, communication skills, and knowledge of business operations."
They asked me if I had experience with QuickBooks.
I responded that I did not, but had experience in several other financial based programs. Further, I'm not afraid of learning news systems, taking in person or on-line training, hands-on learning, but I was confident that I could learn QB quickly.
