Financial managers
Description: Financial managers work for all kinds of businesses. Many work for banks, credit unions, or insurance companies. They prepare financial reports and make sure the business pays its taxes and has enough money to operate. They watch over the cash flow, manage the company's stocks, and communicate with investors. They also decide whether the business needs to borrow money, lend money, or invest in stocks and bonds.
