A company I'm interviewing with for a country manager role (in Asia) has asked me to write a business plan to grow their business.
I can hear Mark voice in my head, "Unless you got something, you got nothin'." So perhaps I just buckle down and do it?
However, doing all of that and not getting hired means that they have a great plan and I have nothing. (I would normally charge for this kind of work)
Lastly, I'm not 100% sure that the company is a good fit for me. They clearly don't subscribe to Manager Tools.
One piece of advice I received is to write an Executive Summary of my recommendation and then tell them they can have the full report if they hire me.
Thank you very much!
