Starting work in business
I will firstly start by looking at and enquire into three different job roles that have been advertised in the newspaper or over the internet. For each job I will note down the skills, qualities and the responsibilities needed by the employer in order to carry out the job. After I have written down the three job roles I will choose one that interests me and phone or write to the employer to ask for a full job description or person specification and what are the other skills and qualities that the job requires.
I will try and talk to someone about the working day that is involved and their main responsibilities. I will list the skills and qualities needed for the job that I would like to apply for then make a list of the further qualities that I would need in order to do this job. Further to this I will investigate the following types of ownerships example a Public limited company, partnership and a non profit making organization. For each business I will identify where the business is located and what products or services it provides and I will also look at the functional areas of each business and how they operate.
For the three job roles I will describe what the lifestyle would be like in these and also how it would be affected by working within the organization. I will now investigate the three job roles within the areas of retail and administration that I am interested in applying for. The first job role in the retail sector is a Cashier The second job role in the administrative sector is date processing And the third job role retail sector and it is a stock control I found this first job by looking on the internet and this is the job specification for a supermarket assistant at John Lewis Partnership.
