CCTT Business Associate

A Letter from CCTT Subject: Marketing letter for Social media

September 2014

An integral part of my role at the Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT) is to foster relationships and build partnerships with organizations to ensure that we continue to have the skilled manpower needed to compete nationally and globally.

The shortage of skilled technical manpower in Canada is acute.

I am reaching out to all Technicians & Technologists to help us attract young Canadians into careers in applied science & engineering technology. Programs like National Technology Week® and GoTECHgirl© are but two examples of the work we do to help identify the workers of tomorrow.

Looking to expand your network?? CCTT has created a new Business Associate Category that may just be what you need. Group discounts on car and home insurance (as much as 30% off) along with Professional Career Coaching are available along with professional development opportunities.

 

CCTT has also set up a LinkedIn Account to increase awareness. Please click on the link and sign up as a follower today.
