Capture managers must ensure that things move smoothly from proposal to closing, and they may need to sell opportunities internally in order to obtain necessary resources. They should be able to quickly familiarize themselves with the client and their business, and applicants should have an accomplished business background, a college degree, and strong understanding and aptitude for project management, contract-development, and making proposals.
Strong time-management and organizational skills are important in this position, as are interpersonal skills to work well with other employees.
