I cover Finance & Accounting for Commerce companies everything from junior to senior positions including CFO level.
KNOW YOURSELF first but also know the market, competitors, what clients are looking for. It's not enough to know your strengths, weakness, what you're capable of. It's more important to have an X factor or competitive advantage that is unique to the market, and learn how you can add that value to your next company. Also, be flexible in your approach how you engage with the interviewers because each company, team, hiring manager will have different expectations.
