  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills, with the capability to navigate cross-functional collaborations effectively and be front and center with company executives

  • Advanced financial modeling techniques and abilities with a deep understanding of best financial modeling practices (you should be prepared for a financial model case study)

  • Exceptional analytical skills and the ability to synthesize complex financial information into clear, concise reports
