information technology

Successful businesses require employees to have a number of interpersonal and digital skills. The digital age is expanding into all areas of our lives including our careers. In the modern workplace, digital skills are highly valued and will soon become vital. All of our career building pathways include Computers and the Workplace course to strengthen these necessary skills.

Office assistant positions can be found in all industries, and share a rather large set of skills. Whether the office belongs to a law firm, a medical practice, an educational institution, or a corporation, the needs are similar; somebody has to file records, maintain schedules, and take care of routine communication on behalf of the people who use the office.

That somebody could be you.
