Halifax Partnership ‘Pitch It!’ Competition Helps Land Employment for Finalists

April 7, 2016
Following the success of our Pitch It event, we are pleased to report that two of the Pitch It contestants have found jobs in Halifax. 

Runner up Elizabeth Shaw recently got hired by the start-up called “The Rounds” after she was introduced to a Halifax Partnership Connector working at the company at the International Women’s Day breakfast. This was an informal introduction but still led to her coming in to meet the rest of the team and now starting yesterday as a “Growth Hacker.” 

Pitch -It Winner, Sarah Deveau, was offered a job as Business Development Manager at Partner International in Dartmouth. 

 “I entered the Halifax Partnership’s Pitch It! event to gain networking experience and hopefully make future employment contacts,” says Sarah Deveau “The experience and exposure the participants gained from this event was very beneficial. In fact, at two employment interviews following the event, the employers mentioned they had seen my pitch and the ad for the finalists in the newspaper.”
