A Chief Financial Officer (CFO) basically runs the company. CFOs are in charge of almost everything that keep companies in a good state to keep functioning, They renegotiate contracts, approve projects, write checks, verify that reports are written concisely and show them to the respective authorities as well as to the public (be them stakeholders or not, they must simply inform). They also build relationships with their employees as well as with their clients; they make sure that everybody is following the code of ethics; they review and establish administrative policies.
Since a CFO is considered as the representative of the company, he faces a lot of pressure. The success or failure of a determined project will be attributed to him/her. It’s also a job that demands a lot of traveling inside and outside the country. If you want to become a CFO, make sure that you have obtained enough experience that could be included in your Chief Financial Officer Resume.
