Connected Testimonials


Afolabi Azeez

"A lot of people said it is difficult to get a job in Halifax, but I have gone against the general principal, and the Connector Program played a major part in achieving this. The Connector Program assisted me in understanding the most important element of getting a job, which is the ability to network. I was invited to various social and economic gatherings, and this helped me to develop my networking skills and improve my ability to converse meaningfully with people in my industry." 

- Afolabi Azeez, Conifer Financial Services

Barbara Jessome - Ashburn

"The Connector Program proved to be a solid bridge between school and the workplace for me. It's one I will share with my classmates. Halifax is lucky to have a program like this in place. There is opportunity in this city and there is talent here. The program brings them together. Without wonderful folks like the Connector Team, graduates like me would be westward bound." 

- Barbara Jessome, Ashburn Golf Club

Lior Zelering - T4G

"When people first immigrate, they are sometimes stuck in a shell - they are still improving their language skills, they don't know the customs or know anyone. The program really shows you how to meet people, and put yourself out there. My wife and I used that inspiration to reach out. I am now a Digital Strategist at T4G." 

- Lior Zelering, T4G

Vastal Sood - Revolve

"The most important role played by the Halifax Partnership was to introduce me to the computer science industry here in Halifax. Being an international student, I was not aware of the companies here in Halifax and how to get in touch with these companies." 

- Vastal Sood, Revolve Branding and Marketing
