baCK Student Connection Tool

When choosing where to live, young people report that employment is the top factor they consider, according to the 2017 CK to the Power of Young People (aged 15-39) – CKy Survey from the Municipality of Chatham-Kent’s Resident Attraction and Retention (RAR) area.

In the same survey, 93% of respondents said they would like to remain connected to Chatham-Kent regardless of where they go, and 76% of those living outside of CK said they would consider living here in the future.

Using this feedback, RAR has launched the baCK to Chatham-Kent Student Connection Tool to share CK employment opportunities directly with students.

The baCK Student Connection Tool is a way to encourage young people who have moved away for post-secondary education to come back to Chatham-Kent for their careers and to ensure that students who are currently in Chatham-Kent will continue to thrive in the community.

This is a unique opportunity for students to get a head start and have career information that is tailored to their fields of study sent directly to them.

Interested students are asked to register their contact information, field of study, career interests, and expected graduation date.

They will then receive tailored information via email for opportunities in Chatham-Kent to meet local employers, attend job fairs, or apply for jobs directly.

Resident Attraction and Retention Coordinator Victoria Bodnar says, “the baCK Student Connection Tool is an exciting initiative to keep young people engaged in what Chatham-Kent can offer as a community, and supports the goals for economic prosperity and sustainable population growth in CK Plan 2035.”
