Business touches every aspect of your daily life. If you’re earning, spending, saving or managing money, you’re conducting business. If you’re receiving or providing goods or services, you’re probably conducting business then, too. Almost everything we do, see or touch can be traced back to at least one business transaction.
People who study business in school often go on to work in finance, accounting, retail or sales. Others start their own businesses. Many others take on management or financial roles in other organizations. When it comes to careers in business, the possibilities are endless.
Fundamental business skills are highly transferable and always in-demand. However, if you’re looking for jobs traditionally associated with business degrees, there are a few good places to start.
For more information about the kind of positions available to people with two-year degrees or certificates, like how many jobs are available and how much they typically pay, check out the Office Supervisor, Administrative Services Manager, Tax Preparer, Payroll and Timekeeping and Bookkeeping, Accounting and Auditing Clerk pages on our online Career Coach.
You can also use that to find out more about the kind of jobs you can get after attaining a Bachelor’s degree or higher and more job experience, like ones in Sales or as a General and Operations Manager.
But keep in mind that every profession requires some foundation in business, and every industry needs effective leaders, strategic decision-makers and savvy managers. So other employers often look for an educational background in business management or administration when deciding who to promote or enlist in management training programs.
