CFOs are … worried!

I read an article this morning about CFOs … on one hand cautiously optimistic about the economy and on the other, worried about their companies.

It made me wonder. If CFOs ARE worried about their companies, are they also worried about their jobs? And if they ARE worried about their jobs, are they doing anything about it?

Now, more than ever before, a career survival plan is a necessity. Just like finance executives create 3 to 5-year plans for their companies, they need a 3 to 5-year plan for their career. Being proactive is the difference between reacting in desperation and responding from a position of power to the right opportunities on your terms and within your time frame.
