CONNECTOR NL LAUNCHES IN WESTERN NEWFOUNDLAND

MEDIA RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Connector NL launches in Western Newfoundland

June 11, 2018 – Corner Brook, NL – Announced today, Connector NL has launched in Western Newfoundland. Connector NL matches individuals new to the local area (Connectees) with local employers, civil servants, and community leaders (Connectors) based on industry experience, professional backgrounds, or the Connectee's interest in a specific organization.

Connectors are asked to refer the Connectee to a minimum of three people in their network, and then each of these people are asked to refer the Connectee to three more. These referrals may be potential employers, influential leaders within their industry, or other people who will benefit from meeting with a skilled professional.

As Connectees meet with business and community leaders, they gain a better understanding of the local job market, learn about the community, and are exposed to business and career opportunities “Connector NL uses a simple concept proven to have a big impact. It helps individuals build a network in their new community, while allowing the business community to engage with new talent,” says Shanna Mugford, Western Region Coordinator for Connector NL “When a person chooses to settle in Western Newfoundland, we all play a part helping that person integrate into the community. One way to do that is through professional and industry networking.”

Connector NL in the Western region is partnered with the Greater Corner Brook Board of Trade; however, the program is open to Connectors and Connectees in the entire Western region of Newfoundland (west of the Baie Verte Peninsula). Connector NL is also available in St. John’s through the St. John’s Board of Trade and in Central NL through the Exploits Regional Chamber of Commerce. Connector NL is part of the larger National Connector Program, which now has successful programs in over 35 municipalities across Canada and internationally.
