Career-Based Training Is Important to BC Employers

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Today’s economy of today has forced job seekers to come up with unique ways to stand out to employers. While a strong educational background makes an impressive addition to any resume, career-based training programs are also beneficial.

This highly competitive job market has resulted in students not only re-examining their career paths, but academic programs as well. Sectors such as retail sales, hospitality, construction and administrative support services accounted for nearly 60 per cent of the net employment growth from 2000 to 2010 in British Columbia, according to Canadian economist David Campbell. Jobs in these industries, he notes, are better suited to career-based training programs as opposed to other educational routes.

Beyond career-specific skills, employers also want their staff to have solid essential skills like communication, teamwork, customer service and computer literacy. Recently, the provincial government announced that it would be making essential skills training an important part of its BC Jobs Plan.

The training programs at Vancouver Career College combine career-focused curriculum with practical training. In programs like Business Administration Management and Accounting and Payroll Administrator, students can hone their business and accounting knowledge and practice their essential skills like time management, communication, computer usage and word processing. Anyone interested in expanding their knowledge and capabilities in can begin the enrollment process by filling out the form on the right.
