Four Resume Tips for Finance Professionals
Kim Isaacs, Monster Resume Expert
Finance professionals can find career opportunities in any business sector. Whether you’re looking to be a CFO or controller, financial analyst or financial planner, portfolio manager or investment counselor, the requisites for the resume are the same.
When developing your finance resume, focus on skills, areas of expertise, certifications and specific accomplishments. The resume must convey what you can do for the companies you are targeting. This can be accomplished by illustrating how you contributed to previous employers’ or clients’ fiscal health.
No. 1: Identify Your Goal
Before you develop your resume, you must have a clear job target. Do some preliminary research — review job postings, see what types of positions are available and which companies are hiring, and get a good feel for the desired qualifications. This research will help you determine the skills and experience you should emphasize on your resume.
