Siddhertha Saha Graduates With An Accounting And Payroll Diploma

By WENDY TERRY - January 17 2019

My name is Siddhertha Saha and  I am writing this to let all of you know  that I have graduated in Accounting and Payroll (Diploma) program from ABC Access Business College. I would like to express my gratitude to ABC Access Business College for the quality education programme offered at their school. First of all let me preface this by saying that my compliments are unsolicited. These are honest compliments

I love the ABC college. I chose it because of the Accounting and Payroll program as well this program is accepted by the CPA.(Chartered Professional Accountants)  All of the  Diploma programs of this school are approved as career and vocational programs by the Ontario government. The support of the teachers and instructors  was excellent . My heartiest THANK YOU  goes out to Ms. Sonia and Mr. Berj for guiding me throughout the program. Thank you for helping me to continue my education at your school and  to make this possible for me through help with funding applications. It means a lot to me to know that there are people out there who are committed to helping a student follow their dreams.

After I graduated,  I started to work as an Accounting and Payroll Instructor in a college where I worked almost one year as I am a certified payroll instructor and this is authorized by the Canadian Payroll Association. Then after that, I got another position to work for a corporate client in the  Robert Half Company. As per a conversation with Accountemps and succeeding in the  interview.  I came to know my name was on the top of the list of their payroll data base. It gave me more confidence. At present I am working as an Payroll Analyst in Scotia bank in the division of Global HR operations services.

Finally, recalling the old days at ABC- I appreciate your help during that  2016-2017  year. You were patient, inspirational, and actually made things fun. Thank you so much for everything. I won’t forget it!

Learning Curves would like to point out to our readers a key piece in Saha’s letter. The course he took at Access Business College was certified by a professional association, Chartered Professional Accountants. Joining  a professional association, earning their Certification  is one of the best job search strategies. One, most of them have job banks, an employer who wants a certain skill set, will post with the professional association first.  Two, most of them have regular events where you can network with others in your field.  Here you hear about jobs before they are posted.  Ask the local librarian to help you find an association related to your skills through searching Associations Canada. This directory in only on line now so you will need some help devising best key word search terms Also see www.learning-curves.org , bottom of left column on home page, Skills Transfer for Internationally Trained Professionals. These articles focus on professional associations in fields like health care, engineering, accounting, business, computers, law.
