I’m a Finance Transformation Manager, which I’m assuming is in a way as if I were a BTM but just for Finance. Honestly the remit of the role is as wide as you want to make it, I impact assess business changes, develop and monitor internal controls, write policies, review literally every process and think of ways to simplify and improve it, budget for capex and create investment cases, develop some ad-hoc automation solutions with mainstream tools, give my view on accounting treatment, hold people accountable and keep them informed in a sort of business liasion capacity, etc. Make the role your own! Initiative is the best quality to display in your interview

Nothing. I’m being honest. They identify obvious opportunities and drive the business towards resolving them. Definitely not a full time job. Cash out!

What a ridiculous answer! OP I work with a bunch of them. Short answer is they identify opportunities for clients and lead teams who plug the gaps using various tools, techniques and methodologies.

McKinsey team - either you guys really need people or your recruitment team just very efficient. Received an email on Friday for availability, just now received an email for an interview in 1 day (well, I was dumb too for giving availability this week). This is round 2 interview. Excited and freaking out at the same time.

I’m on Chapter 21 of Becoming where Michelle Obama states people pay more attention to her clothes than her actual words. I can relate to this on a smaller scale.

I finally confronted him and told him I’m not sensitive but it was “getting old.” Can anyone else share a similar circumstance?
