Whichever career you’re after, understanding how a business operates and having a thirst for knowledge can help you land a job and impress potential employers.

Everyone should understand business, or how one works. If you work in one you should understand it's purpose, services and revenue streams. Knowing these things will help you become more investible.

Many of the companies we work with at FutureRising prize those that can bring a commercial side to their game. 

Being a business owner myself, I look for this in people and would always rather hire someone that has already begun to think about how the business operates over someone who can’t think outside of their role.
