Recognized as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People (2021):

Here are some of the reasons why Connected was selected as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People (2021):

  • Connected's internship program includes in-depth onboarding, with interns working together to complete a product development project, mentorship, and exclusive intern-only events and socials -- interns also have opportunities to travel and relocate for client projects, as well as potential full-time positions after graduation
  • Recent graduates and junior employees are encouraged to join Connected's weekly Thursday Roundtable, a one-hour professional development session -- and also have the opportunity to lead lunch and learn sessions, participate in micro-learning, and continue their education with tuition subsidies
  • Project rotations are a major part of professional development at Connected, exposing employees to new projects, technologies, clients, and locations -- employees can request a rotation (and share the types of opportunities they are interested in), while the company's Allocations team plans project rotations and professional development opportunities throughout the year
