Match. Connect. Refer.
ONB Connects – Provincial Connector Program
in Partnership with Post-Secondary Training, Education and Labour (PETL)
ONB Connects is a simple formalized networking process that matches Connectors with job ready Connectees to help build a professional network and connect to the local labour market.
- CONNECTORS are local business people, civil servants, young professionals and community leaders who are willing to support newcomers and new graduates build strong networks in New Brunswick.
- CONNECTEES are job ready newcomers & local and International graduates who are actively looking to launch their career in New Brunswick.
MATCH: Job ready newcomers & local and International recent graduates, pre-qualified as Connectees, are matched with volunteer Connectors. The match aligns the goals of the Connectee with the industry, professional background and interests of the Connector.
CONNECT: The matched Connector and Connectee meet in person for 30 minutes to discuss professional backgrounds, skills, sector related news, and labour market trends.
REFER: The Connector introduces the Connectee to a minimum of three individuals within their network who will, in turn, do the same. The Connectee is responsible to coordinate meetings with the additional referrals.
