Getting down to business
The word Business can mean lots of different things to people. We are all familiar with the idea of the business suit and working 9-5, surviving on caffeine and conducting meetings but this image is only one possibility of a qualification that can assist with opening multiple doors across varied industries and building a set of vastly transferrable skills.
The beauty and appeal of the business qualification is just how transferrable the skills you learn are. Even if you aren’t necessarily sure of a direction you wish to head in, the business qualification provides an excellent springboard for discovering the kind of tasks you enjoy and the type of work that might appeal to you.
We don’t have to have it all figured out (yes I am talking to you year 12 careers guidance counsellor) but the most important thing is to create opportunity for ourselves and study can often be the catalyst for change and the opening of doors to something that could lead to your dream occupation.
Business qualifications can certainly prepare you for a career within the corporate office environment if that is your ultimate goal, but it doesn’t have to be, and the lessons gained from the content taught are wide ranging. From leadership and social skills to decision making and conflict management as well as understanding the importance of team work and diversity in the workforce, these lessons are applicable to the majority of industries and the handling of various challenges that you may come across in any workplace.
Business qualifications are one of the most studied areas in Australia according to studiesinaustralia.com and the range of career opportunities that come with a business qualification can extend across several industries; from accounting to banking, human resources management to marketing and even sports management and hospitality management… the list continuous on – see what we mean by transferrable skills? Nearly every industry has a need for business skills.
If you have been thinking about embarking on some new study or wanting to perhaps formalise your qualifications within your workplace, a business qualification might be a perfect fit for you and when you are ready, we will be here to support you through your journey!
