As we build our Work-Integrated Learning opportunities at the College of New Caledonia we are interested in working with employers like you to offer students experiential learning opportunities related to the core competencies of the Applied Business Technology Certificate. The work term enhances student learning and you have an important mentorship role to play. We offer an employer orientation and ongoing support during the work term. Join us as we work to build and retain our region’s future workforce. Contact the Education Developer for WIL for more information.
Students in the one-year Applied Business Technology Certificate complete a 3-week work experience in the role of Administrative Assistant. Students in the second half of this program use business simulation software to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in a work-like setting during a 102-hour comprehensive office simulation course. This prepares them for the expectations in the workplace, for example: creating workplace success, evaluating your professional image, communicating effectively, leading by example, managing conflict, developing customer focus, valuing diversity, and acting ethically.
Many students are available for work experience, internships or for hire at the end of a semester following final exams. Many of our programs end in the spring. So be sure to connect with us in the fall or January/February with postings.
