    • if they were serious about this hire they would be more professional;how about a headhunter?get someone who wants to be apart of something really special-who`s a top notch seasoned proven pro and can assume deep responsibility and can get things done.problem is the situation does not exist.that`s why these over paid and ridiculously exaggerated managers do it all half#$%$.it is my opinion that something is deeply wrong with this company...

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • Edison had to pitch his light bulb to investors. Don't know what a headhunter was called back then. The ads breadth of potential sales fields is stated well, grid, motors, etc. The market would not be ripe with Candidates having experience selling '2G HTS wire available now with broader suitability/ affordability/performance'. Maybe such spec'd headhunters are out there locating personnel of such less common backgrounds. Not so much a "I've sold shoes and aquariums and golf balls experience" makes one eligible here. I'd hope the exposure at Hannover-Messe, product inquires, personal industry contacts these last years have brought interesteds to consider.

    • The position is also posted on Monster. 'Posted 1 days ago'

      Qualified candidate searching is beyond the careers page at SCON website now. STI excellent employee benefits listed. All good. Thx for the post.
