My name is Emmeline Rancourt. I graduated the 2 year business program at Cambrian College in April 2019.
Before graduating, I dedicated myself to serving customers to the best of my ability and worked a couple of jobs in the retail and food industry. While at Cambrian, I participated at the Cambrian College Tax Clinic as I very much enjoyed my accounting classes and helping others. Although the business field is very versatile when it comes to career paths, I’ve always liked the accounting side of things. Just before officially graduating I landed myself a job here at Gain Control Bookkeeping and I’m very excited to start a new journey and use the skill’s I’ve practised at school in the real world.
