IBM's team

The opportunity I had to connect so directly with all of Lime Connect's partners was incredible, and one that I have never encountered elsewhere.

Recognizing and valuing the intellectual capital that is found in people with disabilities, Lime Connect's corporate partners BMO, IBM, RBC and TD are actively recruiting current university students, recent grads and alumni - who happen to have disabilities for more than twenty (20) professional career opportunities in BC and across the provinces. Roles include consulting, commercial banking, marketing, financial planning, software, risk management and more. Candidates will network one-on-one and develop relationships with corporate execs and recruiters who are seeking to hire.

One in five people globally, and one in ten students on campus today, has a disability. The large majority of disabilities are non-visible – 90% of those on campus and 70% in the general population - including those who are dyslexic or have ADD, depression, medical conditions and many others. Candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
