Enrolling in a skills-based career training program can help job seekers compete in a tight job market. According to Statistics Canada, about 70 per cent of Canadians with certificates or diplomas were employed, compared to 60 per cent of those with only a high school diploma.
In the past few years, many employers have emphasized that candidates should possess specific skill sets instead of a general education in a particular field. Those with practical knowledge and experience gained from a career training program may have put themselves a step ahead of their competition.
Many business career training programs focus on practical skills including use of Microsoft Office software, accounting principles and customer relationship management. These skill sets are common requirements for most business administrative positions and, in some cases, they're among the first things an employer may look for on a resume.
