Cape Breton Connector Program


The Connector Program matches community and business leaders (Connectors) with local and international graduates, newcomers, and other qualified professionals (Connectees) in their industry of expertise.

The Connector Program is a simple and effective networking program that connects driven individuals with industry leaders who can help facilitate the growth of their careers here in Cape Breton.

Who Are Connectors?

Connectors are people in Cape Breton who:

  • Know a large number of people through social, cultural, professional, and economic circles;
  • Have a talent for bringing people together; and
  • Active listeners who offer support and commit to referring Connectees.

Connector Benefits

Connectors will benefit from the program by:

  • Having direct access to emerging local talent;
  • Increasing awareness and promotion about your organization and industry;
  • Knowing you are opening doors for people and helping them succeed and create their own opportunities for growth in Cape Breton; and
  • Making Cape Breton a more welcoming and diverse island to live and work.

Who are Connectees?

Connectees are international and local work-ready professionals, who:

  • Currently live in Canada;
  • Have valid permission to work in Canada (i.e. work permit or permanent resident card);
  • Have sufficient English and/or French language skills; and
  • Are ready to work.

Connectee Benefits

By becoming a Connectee, you will benefit from:

  • Learning about the local job market;
  • Enhancing your networking skills;
  • Building a local professional network; and
  • Significantly improving your likelihood of finding relevant and meaningful employment.

Match

The Connector Program matches pre-qualified international and local work-ready individuals (Connectees) with employers, community members, and business leaders, who are involved in the program as Connectors. The Connectee and Connector are matched based on industry experience, professional backgrounds, or the Connectee’s expressed interest in a specific sector.

Connect

Once the program coordinator has made the match, the Connector and the Connectee meet face-to-face to discuss different topics such as:

  • Industry backgrounds
  • Skills and areas of expertise
  • Industry related news
  • Current market demands
  • Job opportunities to explore in Cape Breton

Refer

Connectors are asked to refer the Connectee to a minimum of three people in their network, and then each of those connections are asked to then refer three more people. As a result, the Connectee’s professional network grows exponentially and the opportunity for success increases dramatically. Referrals may be potential employers, contacts within their industry, or other people who will benefit from meeting with a skilled professional.
