Dear job seeker,

Are you ready to answer the following questions?

– The worst financial forecast you have ever made?

– What are your biggest weaknesses?

– Are you familiar with developing business casing and ad-hoc analysis?

– What methodologies do you use while carrying out a financial analysis?

– What is the first thing you do when given a large FA project?

– Why did you leave your last job?

– Why do you want to work for us, and not in another company?

– Why should we hire you?

It is not easy, is it? And you will have to deal with many other tough questions in your interview. If you want to know how to answer each of these questions, you should check my eBook. See the sample below.

——

Q. 10. Have you created month-end sales reports?

Hint: Month-end sales reports are one of the basic reports analysts create. If you have no experience with the task, you can learn it now, and say in an interview that you are able to create them, and have the experience. It can be done easily in Ms Excel, or in Open Office (or in any other software you use).

A typical month-end sales report monitors numbers of sales of different products in different locations and compare each number with the same indicators from previous month. For example:

 

Product Location Sales Last Month Change
BMW Z3 London 72 80 -11,11%
Bristol 13 13 0,00%
Oxford 24 12 50,00%

 

(Sample report monitors sales of BMW Z3 cars in three British cities, in two consecutive months.)

Have you created this type of a report before? If you have, mention software you used, as well as why this report matters. If you did not, say that you know how to prepare the report, and why analysts should create it for the entire portfolio of products the company sells.

 

Sample Answers:

I have been creating month-end sales reports in my previous job, on a regular basis. Actually, I have been creating very detailed sales reports, segmenting the market as much as possible, so we could draw better conclusions on a monthly basis, and make accurate forecasts for the next months. I used MS Excel to prepare the reports.

I have never done it in job, and they did not teach us to do it at school. However, I try to study at my own and understand the importance of basic reporting such as month-end sales. Therefore I know how to make the report and how to interpret it, in both short term and long term horizon.

 

Q. 11. What profitability models have you used for forecasting a project? Which model do you consider the best?

Hint: This is a technical question from theory. Profitability models belong to a basic knowledge of every good analyst. You should name the models you have used for forecasting, either in your job, or in school, and say which one was the best in given situation.

If you can, focus on the practical application of the model, why you chose it, and why it was wise to apply that particular model. Try to convince the interviewers that you understand the role of financial analyst, and their job.

 

Sample answers:

I have used historic, financial and analytic profitability models for forecasting a project, both in school and in my job. However, it’s tough to say which one is the best model. In the past, I would go for historic model, anytime it was possible to apply it. However, markets are evolving as fast as ever and therefore a little analytics is needed nearly always.

Personally I support trend models. I typically use a lot of historic data and try to discover the trend. I also use competition analysis, to find out what the profitability trends are, to estimate overall market trends. This is, I believe, the best way of forecasting the project, as it gives the most complete insight, and allows the managers to make qualified decisions.

Dear Job Seeker,

Let me tell you something:

Interview for a position of a financial analyst belongs to the most difficult job interviews. You will have to deal with both behavioral and technical questions, and sometimes even solve practical exercises in an interview. I have seen many people fail in the interviews. But …

  • They failed, not because they lacked the qualification.
  • They failed, not because they were stupid.
  • They failed, not because they could not handle the job of a financial analyst.

 

They failed, simply because they had no idea about how to sell their skills and knowledge in an interview, and they didn’t know what the interviewers wanted to hear from them.

How could they succeed? They were graduates, technicians, young people, in all good means. But they were not good in the art of acing an interview. Nobody told them what they should do, what questions they should expect, and what answers they should choose. They failed.

But your story can be different. I will try to help you with that.

Thank you Jeremy, for both your guide and your answers to the additional questions I had.
