What is the Corporate World?

What is the Corporate World?

This is a question that gets asked repeatedly.  By both young professionals, high-school and college students, and people who don’t have much familiarity with corporate businesses.  So, without further ado, if you’ve ever wondered what the corporate world is? how does it operate?  And how do you get into it?  Then read below for all your pressing questions!  So, what is the corporate world? 

In all honesty, the corporate world is nothing more than a business or group of businesses which function as backend, operational providers and drivers and salespeople for main street businesses. To reduce this further, the corporate world and business is comprised of people who make key decisions.  These decisions are to the guidance, futures, and strategy for their core business solutions.

The corporate world is comprised of individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life.  It is your next-door neighbor.  The person ordering coffee in front of you.  And the mother picking up her kids from school. Working in the corporate world is simply being able to provide an organization with a set of skills needed to further their own revenue line, growth, or other business critical need.

Working in a corporate setting typically requires advanced educational degrees.  In addition to experience levels, measured in time. In addition, corporate settings typically adhere to unwritten professional structures.  From attire to email etiquette.  It is not a scary world and is generally a well-liked, easy-to-adapt atmosphere.

The corporate structure is divvied up so that individual organizations within the overall corporation manage certain set duties and responsibilities. There are typically sales, accounting, revenue, marketing, human resources, and business intelligence organizations.  All report up to the head of the corporation through hierarchical structures. 

Each organization, or business unit, typically has their own departmental goals and set responsibilities. The corporate world is at times viewed unfavorably or in a derogatory manner. However, after having spent nearly a decade in several medium and large sized corporate structures, I can confidently say that for the most part, working in corporate and in a corporate environment is generally pleasurable. Though not without its own issues, generally many corporations have begun to push for a more inclusive, open, and friendly environment. 

Have you ever worked in a corporate environment?  How was your experience and would you recommend entering the corporate world versus another career oath
