job market

The blend of office skills and information processing skills will help graduates play an increasingly important role in the automated office. Job market data indicating that employment opportunities exist come from Cape Breton and Mainland Nova Scotia. Employment opportunities extend to any business office setting, and our marketing component gives our students an edge as you will learn to market a company/organization using traditional and social media platforms.

This program prepared me and gave me the confidence to enter the real business world. The close knit atmosphere CBBC has, made me very comfortable. Each and every staff member at CBBC was extraordinarily helpful on my journey in obtaining a full-time Administrative Assistant position in Cape Breton.
