We are back with another set of links to help with your network building. Before we get to the links we want to mention a couple of great over the last week or so.
First up, the NetWorkIt team had a great time and made some great connections at Fusion’s Business over Beers event at Garrison Brewing. The event featured an excellent talk ‘Networking with a Purpose’ by Eleanor Beaton. Check below for a video featuring Eleanor Beaton. Business over Beer is a networking event that Fusion usually has once a month, check back here or follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook and we’ll let you know when the next BoB is (as well as other great networking events).
Second, the Halifax Partnership launched it’s Game Changer program with the #HireMeHalifax hashtag last week. The event attempted to connect grads and employers by having grads tweet out a picture of themselves with their credentials, grad year and #HireMeHalifax hashtag. The event seemed to be a great a success and we hope to see more of these in Halifax and around Nova Scotia.
