So, as of Monday, it will be official. I am changing positions within the company I work for (AtTask, Inc.). I have been "promoted" to a more prominent position over in the sales department. I am not sure what my title will be, but my duties will include managing all RFI/RFP/RFQ requests for the company, as well as all documentation and official correspondence for the sales department. RF stands for "Request For", I stands for "Information", P for "Proposal" and Q for "Quote". They are all pretty close to the same thing. Many companies create documents that they require potential vendors to fill out in order to bid for business with them. These documents can be quite simple for some companies ranging from 5-10 pages and some can be enormous and complex, being 100-150 pages and very detailed. Anyway, without going into too much detail, I will be responsible for organizing, fulfilling, and sending out these documents. This will include answering lots of questions, writing cover letters, compiling technical, marketing, and other information about our product in a customized way for each client. This is a good opportunity for me and will be a good set of skills to gain. The executive team asked me take this role, gave me a trial one to do, and decided to move me over to that position. It's nice to be recognized for my abilities to write, and organize proposals, as well as having sufficient technical knowledge. I've been there a year this month, so it's good to be trying new things and moving forward in my career.
