Use a Business Plan To Secure a New Job
- I'm a shipping lawyer with a master's degree in maritime law from England's Southampton University. I also hold a postgraduate diploma in shipping management. My experience is mostly in the litigation and incorporation of shipping companies.
- I'm looking for a job in my field in Greece or another Mediterranean country. I've contacted a prestigious firm in Panama and was told that I'd be sent to command a branch in the Mediterranean if I could prove that business exists there. How do I prove this to the firm? How do I create a marketing plan that targets potential users, as the maritime business is a traditional one based on trust and acquaintances?
- I have a few acquaintances in Greece but no idea how to obtain business information. I'd need a monthly payment to cover my expenses. How can I negotiate such a plan instead of having to rely on a percentage of what I'd be earning, as business may be very slow in the first months?
