I. FINANCIAL CONTROLLER RESUME TEMPLATE

 

The financial candidate in the resume below directly supervised a financial team of 5 employees, in addition to auditing and consolidations amongst other tasks. Many finance candidates forget to include the number of people that they've trained or managed on their resumes, which makes their resume far less impactful. Carrie's additional skills section is also exemplary, as she's included all of the different kinds of software and computer skills necessary to do her job, as well as finance related skills like making reports.

 

Feel free to use this resume as a base, but be sure to change it to fit your own experience.
