Contrary to popular belief, the biggest demand for financial executives doesn't come from the companies found in the Report on Business 1000 or Financial Post 500. The biggest market for senior financial talent comes from the world of small and medium sized enterprises. There is a healthy demand for CFOs in SMEs but this market is largely hidden from view. How smaller companies recruit for their CFOs is very different from how large companies recruit their financial talent. Lance Osborne has been recruiting financial executives for over twenty-five years and has gained unique insight into how the job market for CFOs in SMEs actually works. Think Like a Headhunter pulls aside the curtain on the how this market operates and offers practical advice on how to access the CFO positions that most financial executives never get to hear about.
