    I am a qualified and experienced accountant recently retrenched. Though with a bitter taste in the mouth, I nevertheless have to look for another job. I find that on closer analysis my background does not quite support what I want to spend the rest of my life doing-basically getting into short-term (upto 18 months) engagements with organisations, imparting my skills and knowledge to small and medium sized enterprises, firefighting for organisations with finance and accounting difficulties, organisational development, risk identification and management etc. I find that in as much as I can get involved again with organisations as an employee, it has to be in senior management where I run the show (in so far as financial management is concerned at least). So…how do I structure my CV? Your thoughts please!
