What is Career Connections?

The Career Connections Program’s mission is to inspire, grow, and establish connections between fair industry members in a supportive environment while providing opportunities for learning experiences, networking, professional growth, and skill development.

The objectives are:

To create connections in order to facilitate the sharing of mutual knowledge
To facilitate networking among WFA professionals through the creation of in-depth business relationships.
To assess and recognize the success of each connection.

How Does it Work?

A career connection relationship is designed to enable experienced professionals, known as Advisors, to share their knowledge, skills, and insights with others through a one-on-one relationship. Program Participants benefit from gaining knowledge and support in achieving their professional development goals, while Advisors make a personal impact on the professional development of others and the strength of the industry association and its members.

The Career Connections Program Committee will take all of the applications and form connections between Advisors and Participants. Once the connection is set, then the Advisors and Participants will develop their own goals, discussion topics, and schedule. The program runs from February 2021 to December 2021.

The Career Connections Handbook has all the information about how the program works, and the expectations of all participants and advisors.
