Business Development Specialist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Business Development Specialist?

Business Development Specialist in London:
Pros: The flexibility and casual atmosphere, the coaching and mentoring, and the opportunity to advance are some of the more notable perks. Other benefits include the work-laptop and the stipend for a phone.
Cons: Not much is bad about the job. They have a very results driven atmosphere so the pressure to preform is high, but they also understand the difficulty of leads generation in a new industry. The uptake is slow.

"Don't loose hope."
To all new business development specialists I would recommend to not loose hope because of the ton of interviews they will have to pass before getting hired. Don't sign on the first contract that is being offered to you. Yor earned your degree and you shall have a job that truly motivates you.
