Backoffice software giant SAP appears to be bringing a refreshing new approach to its recruitment policy. The company is currently hiring a director of business development for its Palo Alto office. It's an important job: developing partnerships with software vendors in key vertical markets.

Perhaps that's why SAP stipulated such an unusual requirement for the post.

SAP seeks irrelevant executive

As you can see, the job calls for over 10 years experience - which has to be completely irrelevant. So how does one go about acquiring irrelevant experience? One can only deduce that SAP needs someone with no experience of ISV relations at all, and a clean room ignorance of all the verticals he or she will be dealing with. Filling this post could be tricky.

And the successful candidate is in for more disappointment. While one of the requirements for the job is "Willing to travel both domestically and internationally on a frequent basis", the "Travel Required" box is marked no.

So back to your cubicle with you - and await further instructions.

The job description is here. ®
