is Commercial Awareness? and how would I show I was maintaining it?
I hate newspeak on application forms.
where the blokes chucks a Union Jack flag over Germans heads to claim a place by the pool? Hahahaha, brilliantly zenophobic.
Being aware of potential mergers, takeovers, company results, what's going on in the budget.
You're maintaining it by: watching the news, reading the business pages of the Times, looking at FT/business websites often [if in doubt, LIE].
it's for a FOPP though.
seriously. You give the $$$ I give you the cd.
Paperwork doesn't need to come into it.
they probably just want to hear that you know who their competition are and what they're doing, what number they are in the music marketplace versus HMV/Virgin etc. If you rave on about the digital music revolution a bit it shows some kind of awareness, no?
probably mean keeping on top of who's doing well sales-wise, so you can help the 900 irritating customers you're sure to encounter every day will come up to you and say "there's this song, i don't know what it's called or who it's by.."
But now I'm quite tempted. Something nice and easy, like, umm, Amon Tobin, AFX, that kind of thing :-D
