For those who have made/making the move from FDD over to FP&A, how do you address the lack of financial modeling skills in interviewing? Seems like a big gap when at Manager or above level when that’s one of the biggest parts of the FP&A function.

So I’m not someone who made a move or is close to one but I would imagine the answer would lie somewhere in just buying an excel modeling course and practicing it on your own time with sample models to show these companies.

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills.

I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.

What would you do? Say you were “furloughed,” but you knew deep down it was spin for no one coming back. The agency goes on and on about how they want to bring you back, they will stay in touch during the furlough with updates, etc. your furlough is coming to an end. The folks who made the decision of course haven’t reached out during this time. You gave over a decade to the agency with a stellar track record. You know the decision was political and not performance-based. (Continued)
