Lime Connect Canada's Corporate Recruitment Events for Current University Students, New Grads & Experienced Professionals with Disabilities in Vancouver
Our next reception will be hosted on February 9th, 2017. Applications are now open.
Our receptions for university students and alumni in the western provinces who are seeking summer, co-op, internship and full time opportunities are hosted in Vancouver twice per year. Additional career opportunities are available via our receptions in Toronto and on an ongoing basis through our Career Connect blog and other postings in The Lime Network. Join, or log in today to check them out!
Lime Connect's corporate partners value the intellectual capital that is represented in candidates with disabilities, and have worked with us to integrate disability as a full component of their overall diversity strategy. They have each realized strong hiring success via our partnership, and are excited about connecting with candidates for current openings. These events mirror campus recruiting cycles, and always include full time roles for experienced candidates - you won't want to miss this opportunity to network one-on-one and develop relationships with corporate execs and recruiters and to potentially meet separately at the event regarding roles. We put talent first, and this is no "job fair."
And since one in five people globally has a disability, with 90% of campus and 70% of non-campus disabilities not visible - including ADD, dyslexia, depression, medical conditions and many others - all candidates with disabilities are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. Candidates from all provinces are also encouraged to apply for consideration.
Our next reception in Vancouver will be held:
Date: February 9, 2017
Time: 6:00 - 8:00 pm (registration begins at 5:30)
Format: Partner panel discussion followed by a networking reception
Opportunities: Openings include various technology internships as well as positions in broadcasting, consulting, software development, credit counselling, sales, commercial banking, client services and more.
Deadline to apply: Sunday, January 22nd
Please note that space is limited because of the event format and candidates apply to attend via The Lime Network. Candidates whose background matches our partners' current needs will receive an official invitation and details of the event in advance. Because of this space limitation, it's important to apply early.

The Lime Network
In addition to our recruitment receptions, members of The Lime Network have the opportunity to learn of/view available positions with our partners and apply directly as Lime Connect candidates - ensuring strong review and consideration. And, our partners review candidate profiles and resumes when they're seeking to fill specific roles. Network members also benefit from our professional development resources - regular webinars and tele-seminars on topics ranging from interview skills to whether, when and how to disclose a disability.
