"The Connector Program is what led me to get the extra push I needed to find employment in my field. Finding employment helped me as an International Student apply for permanent residency through the International Graduate Stream of the Nova Scotia Nominee Program. I highly recommend other international students to participate in the Connector Program and explore what opportunities exist in the Halifax labour market."
