The business services industry consists of businesses that provide non-financial help to other companies. Companies often need assistance with things like shipping, administrative tasks, waste handling and staffing services. The industry also includes jobs that focus on creating or providing technology that helps other businesses run more efficiently.
For example, some business service professionals help other companies create and maintain software systems that they use to store information and run their operations. Others may help other companies solve tech problems that could interfere with employees’ ability to work. Other business services include security services, which help companies protect their physical and financial assets. These services are important to ensure the safety of employees and clients.
People who work in business services often need to develop creative solutions to challenging problems, says Drewbie Wilson, a vice president at Break Free Academy, a virtual learning and training company that provides courses for sales professionals and entrepreneurs. She adds that those who want to pursue a career in business services should be comfortable working under pressure and have strong interpersonal skills.
Many jobs in this supersector are performed remotely, which can be a benefit for workers who don’t need to commute or have family responsibilities that make commuting difficult. However, working from home can come with its own set of challenges, such as distractions from television or other devices and a lack of accountability with co-workers.
