"Business development managers work to expand their company's business, so employers are looking for go-getters who can identify promising opportunities, manage partner relations, and successfully implement partnerships into current business models. In an interview, expect to be quizzed on your analytical, interpersonal, and management skills. You may be asked to evaluate a prospective market or pitch an unorthodox business to the executives of a company."
What markets do you think Cisco should get into and why?
Cisco is already touching the SMB and consumer segment, esp. with its managed services. Public TelePresence at a low enough price would be extremely attractive to consumers in less developed areas. With Cisco's experience in using games to promote its products, offering game hosting as a managed service is not such a big leap.
