We are a small IT consulting business and are about to begin searching for a VP of Sales to organize and oversee our sales and marketing efforts. I am male, and am a greatly against workplace discrimination (race, sexual orientation, gender, etc.) and as an organization we try to maintain a balanced work environment. That said, I feel that this role would most likely be best fit by a female candidate.
Is it discriminatory (legally or morally) to seek out female candidates for a role? I know normal discrminiation is to hire males over female, so I feel a bit weird going the other way.
I am gay, so it's no way to fulfill my personal desires or anything like that. It's simply I think a female brain would be better for this role.
It seems like every decent sales job demands sales experience. I don't want to do tele-marketing or "inside sales".... looking more at B to B outside sales. Any suggestions???? Thanks!

I am a C.O.O(chief operations officer) against a VP Sales with an ego. I don't jump when he needs something like I do with my boss. He is a whiner and I'm to just "handle the situation". Many sit downs, but no resolution. He does not like to play nice in the sandbox type. It's exhausting and he complains to my boss all the time. I just do my job. How do I detour this from my boss, so he doesn't have to soothe egos so the company can run without dismissing my associate from his position. I'm the company man, he's the company girl(no offensive to women - he's just catty and causes trouble) I'm not the only one he targets - its mainly women. How can I get to a respectable level without causing my boss to have an ulcer - We NEED to work together.
What job fields are there or are there any helpfull websites?
I am in high school and want to go to college for marketing. I have taking courses in marketing, advertising, business/marketing math, business management/leadership, and design so I have a pretty good idea that I want to go somewhere in marketing or advertising, but what are some examples of jobs I could do with a four-year degree in marketing? Or a master's? Thanks for your time!
ANYTHING BESIDES MEDICAL FIELD! (do NOT say anything like doctor, dentist, surgeon, chief executive officer, etc) SPECIFIC job and undergrad major required.
You are the IT support person at ABC company. You're organization has just hired a full time national sales rep. She will be on the road constantly and will only be in the office maybe once or twice a month. Communication with the home office is crucial. You're task, assigned by the VP of IT, is to equip this person with everything she needs to communicate, transfer messages, print documents, submit sales orders, and generally provide anything else she needs to effectively do her job. What can you do if you're in her job position?
I'm looking at different schooling options and I am more of an artistic person. Marketing seems like the most viable business related job for me but is it extremely difficult to find a job in the industry? Also, is the wage decent enough to make a living?
Normally, you would expect a CJ major to work in a CJ career, a business major in a business career, an education major in education and liberal arts majors in liberal arts careers. The thing is I have heard of English and even history majors and language majors in government, journalism, education, business, arts and sciences and a few go into clerical/ admin, customer service and sales. Although I have not heard of many CJ Majors doing anything outside of Cj and Business majors obviously go into business. Of course, education majors go into education.
My manager has gone from Marketing Manager to Vice President of Marketing and now she's taking on Sales opportunities. She dumps a lot of the work on her team which is me and a few other people. I've been Marketing Associate for the last 5 years taking on all the projects that come in by myself ever since the VP of Marketing decided to start selling. She keeps getting promoted and I keep staying in the same place.
What am I doing wrong?
Conversation 1 (After interviewing a male candidate)
VP:He's really quite hotshot. i was really impressed with his resume and qualifications. i hope you're not offended,Jones, that he's a man and all, but u know, i think men are better suited for the sales and marketing position.
Jones:what does being a man have to do with this? why don't you think a women could do just as good as a job?
VP:Well i think that male sales director are better able to handle the pressures from diffrent constituents. Sometimes they have to be a little more aggressive and forceful in their dealings.
Conversations 2 (after interviewing a female candidate)
VP:i like her qualifications she seems very competent, but we're not hire her. keep her resume in file,through she's mt type.
Jones:what do you mean?
VP:well she is blond,which i personally like, and more mature.with older woman you don't have to deal with all the problems, like pregnancy and family,that younger women have.

Before you shout the obvious "beause they make 140k+ starting salary," read what I have to say below.
I've always wondered why many investment bankers, especially entry level are forced to work 80-100 hour weeks. As far as I can tell, the only effect this has is to make them completely ineffective at work and draw in people who are more interested in money than in what they are actually doing.
There have been numermous studies that show that when people work those kind of hours, their work exhibits low quality as they are always tired and do not have the attention span to focus.
Also by making the job so tough that the only reward is the high salary, the people drawn into the industry are people more interested in the money than the science of finance.
I postulate that if the banks hired more people and worked them 55 hours per week and paid them less accordingly they would get employees who are less money motivated and do higher quality work.
Do any banks do this?
I've got a company I'm looking at joining. Doing about $5m in sales currently and the company is mildly profitable. I've been offered the VP of Products job - the question is how much equity should I be asking for as a ?f total equity. Is 0.5?oo much, too little? What other questions should I be asking?
25k assumes 500k outstanding - for this question I don't think it really matters the total shares but rather the ?f equity.
I want to open up my own business(es). I want to be an entrepreneur!
What kind of people do I need to help me? If you are answering this question, need a job, and know what you are doing.....I need your help. I need to create a business team! Email me directly if you're interested.
Like what kind of degree would be useful. Also I want to join the Army and do ROTC in college so keeping that in mind, once I was discharged what kind of job should I apply for? All answers appreciated thank you.
