Trick or Treat in Business

Are you looking for an entry-level job in the business world, but you aren’t sure if you remember how to play Chutes and Ladders – or what that really looks like? Maybe you think of these following characteristics: 

  • Pressed white shirts
  • Cleanly shaven
  • Fancy watches
  • Polished shoes
  • Neat and tidy haircuts
  • No tattoos
  • No cell phones

TRICK!

None of this is typical anymore. Business has changed!  

TREAT!

You no longer have to play Chutes and Ladders, which means you don’t have to step over the good player to climb to the top and risk falling down for your behavior. Business is interesting, it’s even fun!  Some things you’ll see in the business world might include a few of those tricks above, but that’s diminishing quickly. Of course you must always present a clean and professional appearance, and there are some businesses that can be rigid concerning appearance – but not all of them.

Some real games you’ll get to play while being in an office setting would be be finding the poopy in the diaper. What?! Poopy?! You silly readers, it’s just a Tootsie Roll in a diaper. What’s it doing in a business environment? For fun. Yep. Fun. In the office you’ll find supervisors that cultivate camaraderie and that means hosting baby showers, having pot lucks, and joining forces at a local charity.

Here are some things you’ll do at your desk: work hard, exercise your brain, and have fun putting up pictures and organizing your cool desk supplies. You’ll get a work space to personalize and a workload that is matched to your skills because you got the right job, right?  You might not get to be on your feet too much, but you’ll be allowed to stretch your limbs now and then, no one will lock you in place! What a trick that would be!

So, back to business…seeking a degree in Business Administration and you want to know if it’s a trick or treat? Why don’t you just find out for yourself? See you in class!
