Business Development Representative (Current Employee), Franklin, MA – February 20, 2014
My typical day as a Business Development Representative consists of making cold calls to prospective customers and current customers. I hold high level technical conversation to identify a customers' pains and initiatives; and ultimately provide them with solutions that are cost-effective, efficient, scalable, and offer maxi flexibility and choice. – more... If I discover a customer has a need or initiative I set up a conference call or on-site visit for the customer to meet with the EMC Representative.
I have learned: -The entire EMC Product Portfolio -Perfected my presentation skills - Cold calling skills - How to identify a pain/need by asking a customer the right questions
I love my co-workers! They are the best part of my job. Everyone is young, fun, energetic, and always positive.
The hardest part of my job is making the 100+ cold calls a day. Most days I talk to 10 people or less.
Most enjoyable part of my job is learning. I love learning new technologies and skills in general. I also love the interaction between my co-workers and I. – less
