Nothing stands out more to an employer than a student with strong skills in their chosen fields. An ideal candidate for an accounting and payroll administrator position has experience organizing a large number of workers' payroll information, understands the formulas of Microsoft Excel and has significant training to perform under tight deadlines.
Some of Canada's leading companies have worked directly with colleges across the country to ensure that the training students receive in their courses is effectively preparing them for the transition to the workforce after graduation. In some cases, a college education has not readied students well enough for their desired careers and they return to school for a post-graduate certificate in their particular field.
Business graduates are a hot commodity in the job market. To keep the skills learned in the classroom relevant and essential in the workplace, industry leaders communicate with academic officials to share which programs would benefit students most and which types of practicum will properly prepare them for the real world.
Ultimately, earning a skills-based education for an accounting and payroll career can be the best initial step toward landing that first job. Young adults can enroll in the Accounting and Payroll Administrator program at CDI College to gain networking connections and strengthen their knowledge of the industry. To begin, fill out the form on the right.
