What are the responsibilities of a business development associate?
Business development associates work closely with our leadership team – managers, principals, partners, and senior partners focused on specific industry verticals – to advance the practice and client strategy. Specifically, associates conduct out-reach to potential new clients and support and/or facilitate communication with current clients. Each associate is assigned a set of clients across practice verticals.
As an associate, you will have the opportunity to utilize and sharpen a mix of skill sets. You will strengthen your communication (both verbal and written), organization, and teamwork skills as you work alongside other associates and the leadership team. In addition, you will gain industry experience and knowledge of the target companies with which you engage. As you work towards reaching your weekly targets and goals, your understanding of the dynamics and challenges of your target companies will deepen.
