"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."
Very little specific information about the position was offered beforehand, so I had to do all of my own research. This made it difficult to prepare for specific questions.
I feel that it is unprofessional to ask someone to come in for an interview on their own time and at their own expense, and then never get back to them with an answer.
