Business Development Managers and Directors

Work Environment

Business development directors and managers work in typical office settings with the requisite computers, office equipment, and support staff. They can expect to work about 40 hours a week, Monday through Friday, but they may have to work at night and on weekends occasionally to meet deadlines or confer with potential business partners. Directors and managers travel frequently to business meetings, conferences, and industry events. This career involves frequent interaction with colleagues from other departments (such as sales, marketing, legal, and accounting). People who enjoy schmoozing and making deals will find this career to be stimulating and rewarding, although it can be stressful when deals in the pipeline fall through.
