HAMILTON, Dec. 27 /CNW/ - As an employer, you want to know you're taking
a good risk when you hire a new employee. And College students want to know
that potential employers will hold a diploma in high regard once you graduate.
Business Skills College (BSC) in Hamilton understands both sides, and
with a proven track record of producing high quality, workplace-ready
graduates, it is proud in 2008 to launch an innovative new practice called
SmartHire(TM) is an employer guarantee designed to build the college's
already strong reputation in the local community and beyond. SmartHire(TM) is
unique among all the colleges and universities in Hamilton. Because it ensures
that employers who hire a BSC graduate full time, if they do not retain the
employee after their probationary period, BSC will provide the employer with a
choice of the following:
- Another candidate;
- A credit of $1,000 for training existing staff in Microsoft Office
- A cash payment of $500.
- Free retraining of the graduate in the deficient areas

that we will go that extra mile to back them up with this powerful support
tool for business," said John Williams president of BSC and creator of the

allowing them to be "valuable, performing members of the workplace from the
moment they get a job," believes Williams.
BSC graduates are able to perform tasks beyond the job for which they are
hired, for example, database marketing in Microsoft Access, newsletter
production in Microsoft Publisher or corporate correspondence in Microsoft
"BSC graduates know how to use a computer for business gain," Said
Williams. "More so than many community college graduates, BSC graduate's
training is highly practical and calibrated to meet the needs of today's
workplace. Our graduates think strategically and maturely to strengthen their
employer's business and improve its bottom line."
John Bosanac, president of Sandwell Fuels and Bosanac Heating and
Electric Ltd. in Hamilton, is an example of a satisfied employer.
"I'm very impressed with the BSC graduate we hired," he says. "The
person's skills were immediately relevant and applicable to my business and
immediately brought productive results to our organization. I highly recommend
hiring a BSC graduate if you want to move your business forward and see
results within a short period of time."
BSC produces graduates in many programs including Business
Administration, Financial Administration, Legal Administration, Early
Childcare Assistant and more.
