Graduates typically work in an office environment, although office environments can vary greatly – from start-up agencies to established corporations. Offices may be located in an office building or on location at a manufacturing company or factory.
Some business graduates may be able to work from an online home office with occasional trips to the main office for meetings and presentations. Depending on the specific position, some travel may be required to satellite offices or client establishments.
As a business grad, you can typically expect a 40-hour work week, though extra hours may be required for bigger projects or tight deadlines. Those in upper management or with greater responsibility will typically work beyond the 40-hour standard. Executives often spend additional time attending professional events and staying current with industry trends. Full-time employees generally receive full benefits packages including health/dental insurance, paid vacation and sick time, and retirement/wealth savings or accrual plans (such 401(k), company stock, and profit-sharing).
