|Description:||A career in office work is challenging, fast-paced, and interesting. In a typical office, you might be required to create/maintain a website, produce flyers, or generate a news letter. You certainly will need to know how to use the Internet for information, travel arrangements, and e-mail processing. Further, you will be expected to manage electronic word processing, spreadsheets, databases, presentations, and desktop publishing. 'Soft skills' such as the ability to manage your time, greet visitors properly, and answer the telephone effectively are highly valued by employers and taught in this program.
Our program prides itself on the ability to teach our students inside and outside of the classroom. Each year our students visit Cunningham Swan, prestigious local law firm, to obtain a deeper understanding of the workforce. We also provide professional development seminars such as dining etiquette, and dress for success. Students are then able to put this information to use during their 6 week placement sessions.
