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, current 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.
