Broadly speaking, there are a few major categories. Marketing, sales, accounting ,finance, and IT are probably the major ones. You'll also see Business Management as a career path, but any category can lead to management if you demonstrate leadership skills. If you have a particular interest or skill that fits a category, search for a company with those opportunities. If you want to progress through a traditional career path, find a company that has some kind of corporate structure. Through time and effort, you will progress through the company in different jobs and gain the experience for management. So, if you're not sure, ask yourself if you are good with numbers and are well organized. That might lead you to accounting. If you are creative, articulate, good with people, and are a self-starter, you might find sales or marketing a better starting place. These are very broad generalizations, but the thought is to start off in an area where you are comfortable and then gain the confidence and skill to try something else. Most managers who have broad experience are more effective than those who are have narrow experience.
There are going to be many careers in the business world. I would say most of the opportunities would come in the form of small business or retail. This would mean there are tens of thousands do opportunities out there. This field would also give you the option of working for corporate America if that is something that may interest you. I have did a little bit of all these, and I can say that I have always been able to find a job that has good benefits and a competitive salary.
