Eventbrite - CONNECTWorking June 6, 2107 - Success Stories: the journey to your new job in Vancouver

CONNECTWorking, a monthly key rendezvous!

The first Tuesday of each month, BC talents from France hosts a CONNECTWorking event. We welcome members of the French community from all over the world, new comers and workers, and invite them to learn about a work-related topic. A specialist keynote speaker usually gives the presentation and facilitates a discussion with members of the audience. 

The presentation provides some useful tips about job search, work-related issues and Canadian culture. It is also a time to brainstorm ideas, share experiences and learn from each other. At the end of the workshop, people are encouraged to nurture their network in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.

What to expect

A meeting in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere around a drink where you can meet with our French community of professionals. After informal discussions, to make the most of the evening, everyone is invited to briefly introduce themselves and their current career. We sometimes end the evening with a discussion on a specific topic.

Why you should come

  • Start building a local professional network, which is often a requirement for a successful job search,
  • Find a sponsor among our community to personally help you in your search and provide you with priceless advices to succeed,
  • Have a great time with people who share the same culture and background as you,
