Business Development Openings

Absolute Requirement

More important than knowing our industry...
More important than even knowing our markeplace...
Even more important than knowing what we do...
...You must have good communication skills!


[we aren't talking about the occasional typo or mistake, we are talking about things like putting in the wrong company name (or combing two company names to make one wrong one); putting pricing in a proposal twice (each being different); having things in proposals like: "February 31st," "January 21th," "Hisself," "Two Whos It Concern" as well as carelessly calling clients you've met dozens of times by the wrong name, wrong company name or the name of your favorite comic book hero!  Needless to say we've been there, done that!]
