Have an Answer?
Well, there are lots of areas of business, so I will speak on general reasoning only..
Do you want to find a job quickly and easily upon graduation?
Do you like helping others, either by providing a good or service to them?
Are you hard-working and dedicated to the task at hand?
Are you willing and able to work scheduled hours, likely to interfere with personal life?
Are you willing to put your work above temptation and pressure from other's?
Are you willing to work for your education and succeed among talented other's?
Do you like mathematics?
Do you prefer human interaction over working individually without the "background noise"
If you answer "yes" to some or all of these questions, business is a great choice for you.
It really depends on what you're thinking about doing in "business". Are you thinking about sales? Marketing? Accounting? These are the things you want to focus on. If you start taking a few business classes and feel out each arena, you can probably pin down an area that you like, or figure out if there's something else you would rather do. You can also narrow down if there's a particular market that you would like to focus on - like healthcare, technology, marketing consulting, etc. You can also take aptitude tests that can give you some ideas to consider or where to start trying things out.
Most public and school libraries have a section on Careers. Access the card catalog for careers in business. You may have to ask the Reference Librarian if you are having trouble finding the Career Section. Usually there is one book per career. Check it out and take some notes on the requirements for a business career and the positions that are part of this career.
Another option is to speak to someone who is in the field already. They should be able to answer questions such as what positions are available to a beginning business employee and what the career path for some of these positions might be. If you don't know someone in the field of business, your guidance counselor should be able to set something up.
You might try taking a beginners business class. There you may be able to find out the business area you would like. You will need to narrow down your search from a business position to one that is part of business: marketing, sales, office work, computer work.
Best of luck and let me know if you have more questions or comments.
What do you do in your spare time? What are you passionate about? When I answered those questions 15 years ago I realized a business degree and the variety of career options it presented was right for me.
If you feel a passion then it's the right thing for you. If you would do it for free - then go for it.
How you know if business is right for you would be if you can be committed to what you are doing. Business requires a lot of focus and whats fun about business is the various opportunities... you can take a beginners business class to help you get an idea of what kind of business you would want to major in.Hope this is helpful
If you enjoy doing it every single day. You must be happy with your career in order to fullfil your personal desire.
