How can you successfully address a financial question in an interview when you have not been involved with fiscal management? I'm interviewing for a leadership position where I will be leading a small group of managers. This is a public sector position. In this case, disciplines exist in silos, therefore as a clinical manager (mental health) you don't ever get into the details of fiscal matters. Fiscal decisions are made by the Commissioner's office and then passed down to our CEO and so on. At leadership meetings I receive copies of positions, vacancies etc, but I've never been in the discussions about the budget and allocation of resources. I have a solid understanding of our states fiscal situation, our facilities challenges, and have always been mindful of doing more with less. Any feedback would be appreciated.
