I really, really enjoyed it!” S.K.

“I'm very excited to tell you I got the secretarial position I applied for! The MS-Office Certificate Program has served me very well! I took my completion project along to the job interview and was able to show them what I am capable of doing. I'm very excited to be part of a top notch team with my new employer. Thank you for all your support and guidance throughout the program.” L.B.

“I have just landed a new job! Without the MS-Office skills training you so patiently and competently provided I would not have been qualified. Thanks for being a part of my journey to this next phase of my career. I'm doing office admin for an engineering firm downtown.
