Business Development Jobs — Things You Need to Know

Will you have to start your career as a business development executive if you want to get into sales in a few years’ time? You won’t necessarily have to become a business development professional first as many employers do hire for sales roles directly without using business development as a stepping stone.

That said, it’s often ideal — for entry-level candidates and freshers — to carve out a career in business development first, pick up sales-oriented skills along the way, and gain invaluable work experience before moving on to sales jobs. So, you could say that a business development role serves as a backdoor entry into the sales domain.

With the sales vs. business development topic out of the way, let’s try and understand the nature of a business development job. And there’s no better way to define a typical business development role than discussing the job’s responsibilities.

Here are some of the typical responsibilities associated with a Business Development role in India. 

  • Become a subject matter expert on business products, processes and operations
  • Constantly stay in the loop about industry-specific news and market trends
  • Collaborate with in-house or external sales team to prepare and design contract-winning proposals for prospective and current clients
  • Identify the target market and the potential clients within it
  • Conduct complete research in the business and equipment requirements of the prospective clients
  • Work out the nitty-gritty of contract terms and conditions and communicate the same to the respective stakeholders
  • Maintain existing client relationships and simultaneously develop new relationships with prospective clients
  • Specialise in the product/service being sold and know the ins and outs of operational processes
  • Work together with product and design teams to establish the product or service specifications and ensure that they meet the deadlines

Basic Eligibility Criteria for a Business Development Jobs

Business development executives must fulfil employers’ eligibility criteria first before appearing for interviews. Typically, employers that hire for BD jobs in India have the following requirements.

  • Education: A bachelor’s or a Master’s degree in business administration. In the case of the latter, a business-specific qualification (specialization) might be needed. As a candidate for business development roles, you must realize that the educational requirement may change from company to company.

  • Work Experience: Having worked in a sales or BD role will certainly boost your chances of landing a job. That said, there is no hard and fast rule about possessing work experience for a certain number of years to qualify for business development roles. However, BD jobs that do require work experience look for 1 to 3 years.
  • Skillset: It goes without saying that your skillset will be the ultimate determining factor for selection. Why? Because you will be competing with other candidates for the business development role. And it will certainly help if you have the relevant industry-specific skills to outshine others. 

If you’re thinking of landing a business development role in India, then you should hone or develop some or all of the skills listed below.
