Connector Program

Connecting communities to new, emerging talent

The Valley Connector Program helps newcomers, international and local graduates gain professional networking experience. The program is a simple formalized networking process that matches  Connectors with job ready  Connectees to help them connect to the local labour market 

Connectors are local business and community leaders who have a strong network. They can often be found making introductions within social, cultural, professional, and economic circles. 

Connectees are job ready newcomers & local and international graduates actively looking to launch their career in the Annapolis Valley. They are highly skilled individuals, proficient in English and/or French, legally entitled to work in Canada, and a graduate of a post-secondary program.  

MATCH

Connector Program staff meet with Connectees to discuss their backgrounds and career ambitions to ensure they’re “job ready”. They then match each Connectee with a Connector based on industry experience and professional backgrounds.  

CONNECT

The Connector and Connectee meet for 30 minutes in the Connector’s workplace or a coffee shop to discuss industry details, skills and areas of expertise, related news, curren market demands and hidden job opportunities in the Annapolis Valley. 

REFER

Connectors then refer the Connectee to a minimum of three people in their network. These referrals may be potential employers, influential leaders within their industry or others who may benefit from meeting with a skilled professional.
