“We’re excited to partner with CBU Alumni and the Connector program to offer this new webinar series,” says Carla Arsenault, Cape Breton Partnership President & CEO. “One of our roles is to attract and retain talent for Cape Breton companies, so this a great opportunity to support new grads and job seekers in the hopes of keeping them here at home.”
