The Board of Directors of the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE) is pleased to announce that they have accepted an invitation to join the Advisory Council of Magnet, a not for profit enterprise targeted at helping to solve youth unemployment problems. Executive Director, Paul D. Smith, will represent CACEE.
Magnet was co-founded in Ontario by Ryerson University and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce. Their goal is to connect educational institutions, government, not for profit organizations, professional memberships, and employers with individuals searching for employment accurately and quickly. The CACEE Board acknowledges the potential for the Magnet initiative as a new platform allowing job seekers and employers to find each other. As the leading authority on the transition to the work-force of post-secondary students in Canada, CACEE is interested in the development of the platform, and has much to offer to the Advisory Board.
“Our goal in participating in this project is to represent the interests of all of our membership and to help Magnet to fulfill its potential by leveraging the strength, experience and guidance of CACEE’s members,” says Paul D. Smith, CACEE ED, “and we look forward to learning from the other advisory board members, all of whom are leaders in their own right.”
