There will be something for everyone at this year’s TalentEgg Conference; from the novice recruiter to the seasoned talent acquisition expert!

“The speakers were dynamic and relevant and their messages were delivered in a genuine and authentic way!”

2. Unmatched networking

Last year, conference attendees enjoyed the networking opportunities and degree of interaction that the event allowed, which included Q&A periods at the end of each session, informal breaks throughout the day and the evening networking reception.

This year, we are gearing up for an even more dynamic and exciting event. So download that LinkedIn app on your smartphone, stock up on your business cards and get ready to socialize and connect!

“The audience was equally diverse and there were a number of good networking opportunities.”

3. Feedback from 200+ top students

TalentEgg founder Lauren Friese will reveal the latest data and feedback on campus recruitment initiatives from the past year, taken from our elite panel of more than 200 top students during the 2014 TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards judging period.

These top students were selected from among hundreds of applicants from across Canada for their academic and extracurricular achievements – they represent the group of students you aim to recruit.

“I attend several conferences a year and without a doubt this was one of the most informative and well-organized conferences that I have attended.”
