Getting back into the swing…


Aside from adjusting to my normal routine after my trip to New York, I am just getting over a nasty cold. Yeah, last Thursday, I was giving thanks for Tylenol Sinus and Gatorade. Some people can blog when they are sick (let’s just say they are sick sick people…hee!)…I can’t.

Anyway, now I am recovering and I’ll stop telling people that I *never* get sick. It’s only every few years (now that I moved to Washington….used to get sick all the time in Chicago). Anyway, 4 whole days on the couch has motivated me to start exercising again…soon, when I can breathe normally.

And I am back to blogging. I’ve got some stuff I need to post.  Planning on giving more info about different kinds of business development roles here. That’s one area that I think people find confusing at Microsoft (and rightly so). Also, some thoughts on job searching during the holidays (should you do it or not?). More to come soon.

  1. Heather,

    In your blog from 30 Nov 2004 you mentioned: "…Planning on giving more info about different kinds of business development roles here.

    Could you offer some advice to those of us looking to make connections into those MS groups who are looking for seasoned Business Development and Market Development executioves? Especially those candidate who have extensive experience and a specialty in Alliances and Partnerships —

    Regards,

    Christopher Crawford

    Hi Christopher,

    Probably just the same advice I’ve given for other marketing pros. Try to work through any connections you might already have at Microsoft (leverage employees to refer you, if you know someone).

    Of course, I’m always happy to forward resume to the appropriate recruiters. ; )

    Thanks!
