CFO CVs should be tailored to suit the organization to which you are applying. You should avoid using the same CV when applying to different organizations as they may not have the same requirements or needs. As the competition is high for Chief executive officer jobs the demonstration of in- depth knowledge in the field and extensive knowledge of the organization shows the employer that you are interested in what you do and are even more interested to work in the organization. Emphasis should be placed on the skills that are most closely related to the services the organization offers and what the organization needs at the moment.
