Question by Moore Int. Connections: What is the best contact management software for a small not for profit company ?
I am looking to be able to provide my clients with a useful place to store many fields, including alumni and donors, but also to send e-newsletters that look great, easily. The more information that can be viewed by more than one user the better. I work as a public relations consultant in the US for Israeli businesses and organizations.
Answer by fjpoblam
I got our small group a gmail userid and placed the contacts there. You can place as many fields as you want in each contact. More than one person can be logged on to the gmail account at a time. You can, of course, control it, by controlling who has the password.
You could go another step, as we did, by buying a domain name, and setting up Google Apps for Your Domain, setting up a web page, setting up gmail for the Google Apps Account (also log-on-able by multiple users at the same time) and even have multiple user accounts, to have more granular control. You could even set up what is called a “start page” to give your individual users a place to log on, share documents and a calendar, and more. (Of course, they could share documents and a calendar from the basic non-GAfYD gmail account, too.)
The shareable Google Documents would be a good place to create and store newsletters that could but wouldn’t have to be emailed. Just point out to members that a new newsletter is available, and let them logon to the shared userid, and look at the shared newsletter.

Question by Syria: How can I work in a zoo when management seems cool with all this?
I work in a call center and its SO hard to hear some days. Because 90% of the employees act drunk all dam day. bumping into our shared wall (I don’t know WHAT they do but this guy is really loud and laughing all the time and bumps the wall really hard and knocks stuff off my shelf). This other woman is always cracking up at every thing she says , and comes over to complain at us any time we have to give her some work to do. This other guy tells stories about his weekends and makes loud animal type noises and gets the other two laughing. Oh and he brings in his grandchildren to run around and touch stuff. I guess I’m a sour puss tho, cuz no one else has a problem with those ‘fun’ people. INCLUDING management.
Answer by blackbird
This is the culture that management has nurtured – whether they meant to or not. Now they either have to change it or live with the consequences. And consequences will include losing good people because of the out of control atmosphere. In other words, go find another job in a sane environment. You’re not going to be able to make them change.

Q&A: What types of jobs can I get with an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Business Management?
Question by generalbailey: What types of jobs can I get with an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Business Management?
I am thinking about getting an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Business Management. What type of jobs could I do with this type of degree? Anything and everything you can think of would be great! Thanks!!
Answer by Ramester
Forget the two year degree. Get a four year degree. There are places where you can get an accelerated Bachelors degree in three years. Reason why is simple; once one gets a two year degree and starts working in their field, the ones who are their supervisors will pull them aside and show them their Bachelors (or even Masters Degrees). On the job field I was in, a new boss came in and mandated that all supervisors had to have a Masters Degree to even be considered for supervisory jobs.

Hot 6-Figure Jobs Now
by Jeanne Sahadi
Tuesday, August 28, 2007
We asked 6FigureJobs.com, TheLadders.com and SimplyHired.com to ferret out $ 100,000 jobs where there has been a spike in listings in recent months. Here are 5 areas where the demand for talent appears to be outpacing the supply.
In the past few years, Fortune 1000 companies have been buying a lot of upgrades and enhancements to their “enterprise resource planning” (ERP) systems, and one of the biggest manufacturers of those systems is SAP, which provides application servers, programming language and related software.
That’s why both the companies and the consulting firms to which they may outsource some of their technology work are on the hunt for SAP managing consultants, business analysts, partners, workflow experts and technical writers. “Supply and demand is way out of sync,” said Jason Hersh, managing partner of recruiting firm KleinHersh International, a member firm of the MRINetwork.
More from CNNMoney.com:

• Salary Secrets and Myths
• Best Jobs for the Long Run
From finance to human resources to shipping and receiving, “SAP touches all parts of a business,” Hersh said.
Those who consult on the more technical aspects of SAP systems typically earn between $ 100,000 to $ 125,000, Hersh said. Those who manage SAP projects can earn between $ 125,000 and $ 150,000, while project managers who serve as liaisons between project teams and clients can earn $ 150,000 and up.
Jobs available at the consulting firms require a lot of travel. But among in-house positions, the need for SAP experts is strongest in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwestern states based on listings at TheLadders.com.
Enterprise business software makers — such as SAP, Oracle and PeopleSoft — are in hot pursuit of sales reps with good track records at their competitors.
“All the companies are running around trying to steal (the top sales reps),” said Steve Purello, general manager of 6FigureJobs.com.
Those with a good track record and five years’ experience can command between $ 100,000 and $ 200,000 plus commission.
The aging of the Baby Boomers has been a boon for pharmaceutical companies, medical device makers and other health-related businesses, which is why they’re eager to hire sales representatives and sales managers.
A sales manager might make between $ 100,000 and $ 140,000, while a regional sales director can make between $ 120,000 and $ 150,000, said Greg Lee, managing partner of WorldBridge Partners, a member firm of the MRINetwork.
A vice president of sales, products and marketing, meanwhile, can pull down $ 150,000 to $ 225,000 plus another 25 percent to 30 percent in bonus, said Matt Lemmons, senior partner of PrincetonOne, also a member firm of the MRI Network.
More sales jobs
Commercial construction has enjoyed boom times in the past few years and construction firms have expanded to become one-stop shops for clients. They not only want a building built, they want help with design, pre-construction and even property management, said Bobbi Moss, vice president of Govig & Associates, a member firm of the MRINetwork.
That’s meant more projects and more jobs, particularly for regional sales managers at construction firms’ suppliers, Moss said.
A regional sales manager might sell to builders directly or through supply distribution channels and can make a base salary between $ 80,000 and $ 110,000 plus up to another 30 percent in bonus.
Economic growth in the past two years has boosted demand for manufacturing. For example, when a firm does well and decides to expand its office space, commercial furniture manufacturers benefit as do their vendors.
That growth has also given a push to more research and development. “Companies have brought a lot of R&D projects out of the moth balls,” said Greg Lee, managing partner of WorldBridge Partners, a member firm of the MRINetwork.
That’s why experienced sales managers who help a manufacturer expand market share and penetrate new markets are in demand, and they’ve seen their pay go up by as much as 20 percent in the past two years, Lee said.
Depending on the size of a manufacturer, field sales managers can earn between $ 110,000 and $ 130,000 including commission and bonuses, he said.
Companies most in need of good sales managers can also be found in retail and wholesale; media and telecommunications; food and beverage, manufacturing, and travel, hospitality and tourism.
Among the listings on SimplyHired.com, the top locations for sales manager positions are in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta and Houston.
As the demand for manufacturing has grown in the past two years, so have the number of listings for operations managers, vice presidents of quality control and general managers.
Operations managers typically run plant maintenance, quality control, purchasing and the technical aspects of product manufacturing. Depending on the size of their firm, they can make between $ 110,000 and $ 140,000, said Greg Lee, managing partner of WorldBridge Partners, a member firm of the MRINetwork.
Vice presidents of quality control with certification in Quality Management Systems and Lean Manufacturing, which streamlines production flow, boosts quality and reduces costs, can make $ 150,000 and up.
General managers, meanwhile, oversee purchasing, materials, manufacturing, engineering and quality control. For their efforts, they are paid between $ 120,000 and $ 200,000.
Healthcare companies’ products and sales team are only as good as their operations teams. And the demand for a good director of operations and vice president of operations is evident among recent six-figure job listings.
An operations director may strategize how to commercialize a product, figure out how to move a drug trial from Phase II to Phase III and handle a regulatory filing with the Food and Drug Administration, said Matt Lemmons, senior partner of the healthcare practice at PrincetonOne, a member firm of the MRI Network.
A director can pull down between $ 125,000 and $ 175,000, while a vice president of operations, to whom the director reports, can make between $ 150,000 and $ 225,000 plus another 25 percent to 30 percent in bonus, Lemmons said.
There’s also demand for project managers and general managers at companies in media and telecom, retail and wholesale trade, computer and information technology, and banking and finance.
Some of the top locations for these jobs can be found in Chicago, Houston and Atlanta, according to SimplyHired.com.
Finance jobs – Construction
As construction firms expand the services they offer clients, they’re also expanding their payroll by creating new entities and new layers of jobs, including many for those who manage the purse strings.
At small- to mid-size construction firms, a senior controller can make between $ 80,000 and $ 100,000 plus bonus, while a CFO may make between $ 125,000 and $ 200,000 plus bonus, said Bobbi Moss, vice president of Govig & Associates, a member firm of the MRINetwork.
Engineering jobs – Manufacturing
To compete, manufacturers need to further automate the production process and make it more cost-efficient. That has put talented mechanical engineers and robotics engineers in the catbird seat career-wise.
Those with five to eight years’ experience can make between $ 80,000 and $ 110,000, said Greg Lee, managing partner of WorldBridge Partners, a member firm of the MRINetwork.
If they’re managers and certified in Lean Manufacturing, which uses techniques to streamline production, boost product quality and reduce costs, they can make between $ 110,000 and $ 130,000.

Question by txreal12: How do you change a townhouse management association?
As one of many townhouse owners who want to change the management company who does not provide the customer service nor do the job that we as owners pay them to do with our monthly HOA fees. I couldn’t find anything thing specifically in the HOA bylaws. Any ideas besides writing to the owners on tax records and ask them to meet and vote?
Answer by jenkinsmerit
As an HOA; you have an elected Board that holds meetings to handle business for the HOA and as part of their duties, they have hired a HOA management company to operate the property. If you are unhappy with the management company then you need to go to the next Board Meeting and discuss this with the Board. The Board can then tell you what is in the contract with the management company and when and if that company can be fired and replaced with another company.
