How to Prepare for a Career in BusinessIf you’ve been looking for your first job in business, you’ve already heard tough questions like these in job interviews . . .

  • “You’re visiting one of our vendors in another city who offers you two expensive tickets to a hockey game. Is it proper for you to take them?”
  • “We’re thinking of launching a new website hosting package. How should we research the products that are already on the market and make sure that ours has a competitive advantage?”
  •  “We would like to sell more of our products in China. What factors should we consider to make sure that our efforts will make money?”
  • “We’re considering you for a position in our marketing department. Can you explain what you would include in a press release that announces a new product?”

Your ability to answer questions like those can make all the difference in whether you get hired. You can find the answers to those four questions by taking college courses in business ethics, introduction to business, macroeconomics, and business communications, respectively.
