Tell Us a Little About Yourself


SURVEY SAVVY

typo on your rsum may give a bad impression, but the interview process is an even bigger hurdle when you’re applying for a financial position. In a recent poll of 1,400 CFOs by Robert Half Finance & Accounting, 32% cited the job interview as the point at which most applicants make a misstep, compared with 21% who pointed to errors on rsums and 9% who were discouraged by the quality of cover letters. So before going out to meet a potential boss, brush up on your interviewing skills. Do your homework by researching the firm, envisioning the questions you’ll be asked and writing out the answers, and even role-playing the entire interview with a friend or mentor. Then read over that rsum and cover letter one last time.
