The business of… Business….

business2In the words of Bill Gates 

“It is a fabulous time to be entering the Business world, because business is going to change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last 50”.

I stole the above quote from a fabulous infographic about the world of Business. You can find this info-graphic here at the LEAP website

How do you know if you would like a career in Business? Well, let us examine the following words and see how they rate on your ‘like-o-meter’. Give each word a score from 1 to 10 (1 is Yuk, 10 is Yup!)

  1. Organise
  2. Plan
  3. Innovate
  4. Communicate
  5. Create
  6. Negotiate
  7. Advise
  8. Travel
  9. Forecast
  10. Consult
  11. Analyse
  12. Promote
  13. Develop
  14. Manage

Add your scores and if they total above 100 (or thereabouts) then a Business career is something that might suit you! (Not exactly an exact science here, but worth a try!)

Check the LEAP info-graphic for more info, and pop along to your careers advisor to discuss work experience ideas and other business-type opportunities.
