3/31/2014 | BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT Page ContentWith the new academic year in full swing, Matric and Grade Eleven pupils have probably already started looking into future career opportunities. It’s never too early to start looking but it’s tough to know where to start. Picking what you want to study is a big deal for most students. Making life-altering decisions is never easy. It’s especially difficult when you haven’t had much experience in making such important decisions. Knowing where to start is probably the toughest part. It might look like a daunting task but once you’ve started narrowing down the field, it gets easier.What nobody tells you is that while picking out the subject matter you’ll be studying for the next three to five years, you should be thinking of the kind of career you want too. If you want to study a BCom, here’s what you need to consider.A Bachelor of Commerce, also known as a BCom, is always a popular choice. One of the reasons for this is that a job in commerce offers good job security, a respectable salary and decent annual leave. You should also study a BCom if you’re interested in having an exciting, fast-paced job. You’ll never be bored. A BCom is a very general degree that covers a broad spectrum of subjects. So, when you’re looking for that first job, you’ll probably have more options than graduates with specialised degrees. In a less than booming job market, this could be considered a blessing in disguise.Depending on what major you choose, BCom graduates will be able to choose from such job titles as: General management Strategic management Entrepreneurship Consulting Corporate management Banking General management Financial services Personal financial services ConsultingIf the business world fascinates you then study a BCom at Varsity College.
