Default HW/Project help!

I need to interview someone in the business field and ask them 10 questions about it and how they excelled, etc etc.

Then I need to write 2 pages on it...

If anyone in here works or does anything business related, please let me know and I can send you the 10 questions so you can answer them...

I would offer paypal for this but I really do not have anything right now...

THANKS!

Business is a huge field. Maybe you want to give more specifics? Any other qualifications? Eg. Would you prefer to interview someone that did post-secondary education or no? Someone who studied business in school or something unrelated? An entrepreneur or no? Etc.

Marketing, HR, Business Management, Business administration, Business Sales, real estate, business owners etc etc.
I guess school is not a big factor, like my professor was telling us that there is older people that didn't really have to get a degree to get into a big company or to start their own business. Because a degree wasn't as important as it is now. Entrepreneurship would be a +

I think posting your questions openly here and letting people answer them would be interesting,potentially humorous and assuredly enlightening

I wish the interwebzzz existed when I was a school lad.

Sigh...in my day we would have had to go to a business and actually talk to someone in person.

I forwarded this to Dexter, he promptly replied

What do I need to know to become a _____? (whatever profession or career you are in)
Serial Killer

What skills and strengths allowed you to be picked over everyone else?
I wouldn't say I was picked. However strengths would be the inability to feel emotion unless I am killing,being desensitized to the human condition and please for mercy

Greatest challenge in your job?
Getting that damned needled to go in the 1st time.

What should I do to prepare for this job?
Wow...this is a tough one. I would think the ability to be steadfast would be the most critical skill to have if you do not have a natural sociopath mindset. I would think convincing yourself that your actions are right and true would be the only way to push into this career field as Average Joe

Qualities they look in, in your position?
The generalized consensus is called the "Trinty". these are 3 traits they feel are always present in a serial killer.
High I.Q.
Abuse of Animals
Speech issues while growing up.
The 3rd is sometimes implemented with Bed wetting or Fire fascination...they should call it the pentagon of Serial killers,but the socio-policial implications and confusion may cause problems.
While I liked camp fires, I cannot recall being a bed wetter

What made you successful?
My motto....Don;t stop till they drop !

How did you find the job?
I fell into it when I killed my 1st person as a youth.

Do you have any suggestions for me on where to look for a similar job?
Florida is always good but new York may work well as well. California is too played out to the point you might end up bumping into others in our field of work.

Strategies you used to get your job?
Vigilance,determination and a "give em hell" attitude..or send them to hell attitude,either or.
Do you love your job?
Love...love is an emotion. I would say I get justification and satisfaction on a physical level.

anything else you want to add, you can.
Harry was a great cop here in Miami. He taught me how to think like one; he taught me how to cover my tracks. I'm a very neat monster. You should consider this option as well to be a better you !

What do I need to know to become a man whore? You have to be willing to do anything with a woman of any age and in any shape.

What skills and strengths allowed you to be picked over everyone else? My good looks, charming personality, and ability to predict what any woman is looking for in a man.

Greatest challenge in your job? STDs, bad breath, and dryness.

What should I do to prepare for this job? Do 1000+ sit ups a day, learn how to speak with an exotic accent, lather rinse repeat ALWAYS REPEAT, learn how to do tongue push ups, and learn how to control your breathing (This comes in very handy when dealing with some women)

Qualities they look in, in your position? Abs and nice hair.

What made you successful? I learned how to make even the most horrendous looking woman feel like a beauty queen.

How did you find the job? It all started when one of my mother's rich friends asked me to come over and mow her lawn. I thought she meant something else. She started recommending me to her other rich gal pals and my career took off.

Do you have any suggestions for me on where to look for a similar job? Upscale clubs that cater to mature women.

Strategies you used to get your job? Flashed my abs and million dollar smile.

Do you love your job? Yes and no. The money is fantastic, so I have everything I need and more. However, I have begun respecting myself less and less every single day.

The world of man whoring is a dangerous one, so never make friends with a fellow man whore because he may stab you in the back one day and destroy your reputation.

PM me if you still need someone to fill this out. Not sure if my job totally qualifies me, I am not a business owner but work for a marketing analytics company.
