Corporations are funny animals, and the people who feed them are even funnier. I have always been amused at the different corporate cultures. Even more amusing is trying to get a job at one. However, who hasn’t had to put in at least some time in the corporate world? Maybe you got in just to learn how to do something and then got out. Maybe you are still entrenched. When it comes to landing a job or getting promoted, business communication classes really can be of help. You learn what it is you need to know when it comes to looking and talking and writing the part of a proper corporate professional.
Sure, I am poking a little fun, but anyone who has ever worked for a major player in the business world knows what I am talking about. You need to fit into the world of big business in order to work in it. Learning how to write and talk your way into promotions just betters your bottom line. I have taken business communication classes when I was working for a global company. It helped me every step of the way in my career. When I went out on my own into business, I still used a lot of the principles I learned in those classes.
If you are not getting promoted at the rate in which you think you deserve based on your work ability, it may be due to you not being able to walk the walk and talk the talk that is expected of corporate managers. Every industry has a way of doing things that is expected. Even the greatest corporate innovators have had to learn how to speak, act and write effectively to get great performance appraisals and be up for promotions. When it is your literal bread and butter on the line, learning how to play the game right is very helpful.
