Connect 2 Careers is an event run by students for students. An executive committee of students from numerous Georgian College programs orchestrates the entire event from start to finish. Alumni and faculty further support the committee as a method to ensure continuity as the event evolves from year to year.

Tanner Richards
Logistics Executive

Tanner is a third year student at Georgian College, currently studying the BAGM program (Business Administration in Golf Management). After growing up playing golf and creating a love for the game, he decided that he would study golf management since he was passionate for the sport. He has spent two summers at the Cabot Links golf resort on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. The two golf courses are highly regarded, and Tanner gained lots of knowledge of himself as well as the golf course while caddying at the resort. He also spent one season as a turf intern at Cabot Cliffs, where he gained experience in golf course maintenance on one of the best properties the country has to offer. Tanner hopes to one day be a part of the management team at a prestigious golf course. This is his third year on C2C, and he can’t wait to contribute to the team in any capacity. He is very excited to be part of the C2C team, and is excited to make the event a success for students looking to find Co-op jobs for the upcoming work semester.
