Assuming you have prior BD experience be prepared to provide specific examples of how you personally contributed to growth of an account industry or solution. Use hard data, $ and percent growth. If you do not have strong prior BD experience be prepared to explain how your past experiences will help you be successful. If you will lead others be prepared to talk about strategies you employ to develop others and contribute to their success. Ideal if you can find someone in a similar role with same company and ask for coaching.

AMA. I'm a former Deloitte Manager who was laid off last year. Recently signed with FAANG with onsites at FB, AMZN, AAPL, Groupon, Capital One. First rounds at GOOG, Netflix. This community helped me a lot and I would like to give back by answering questions to the best of my ability. Resume tailoring, consulting to tech fit, interview prep etc.

Trump is spot on Re: Nord Stream II pipeline. If we are to help defend Germany, they should not be buying Russian oil/gas. Reliance on Russian energy puts them in a compromising position. Why should we bankroll Germany’s defense against Russia when German energy purchases are lining Russia’s pockets? Isn’t Russia the biggest geopolitical threat to Germany in the first place? Buy American LNG exports before turning towards a geopolitical adversary!
