On May 14th, 2015, campus recruitment professionals from across Canada gathered in Toronto to celebrate the best in the industry.

After months of anticipation, the winners of the 2015 National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards were unveiled.

Submissions for the prestigious awards opened in December 2014, and attracted submissions from leading Canadian employers, organizations, and career centres.

To evaluate the entries, TalentEgg called on the expertise of top students across Canada. These standout individuals – Student Judges – were given the opportunity to rate and provide in-depth feedback on career development initiatives, campus recruitment strategies, and more.

“I loved seeing innovative ideas that set employers apart,” says Victoria Miller, a TalentEgg student judge. “There are some definite best practices in campus recruiting which were great to see across the board, but it was exciting to see when an organization injected something new and groundbreaking into the mix.”

The feedback from this year’s judges has been featured in the 2015 Guide of Canadian Campus Recruitment – a valuable resource that highlights the observations of TalentEgg’s judging panel, and provides campus employers fresh perspectives on the most current trends in the industry. This resource will also be published on TalentEgg’s award-winning resource hub and community for campus recruiters and HR professionals.

Attendees also had the opportunity to learn from other campus recruiters who provided their insights on campus recruitment and best practices for connecting with millennials. Among these speakers was Olympic athlete Marnie McBean, O.C. and a three-time gold medallist. Her keynote speech, “To Finish Happy – You Have To Start Happy,” was a fantastic way to lead into the Awards ceremony.

The 2015 National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference saw a lot of dedication and enthusiasm for recruiting the best and the brightest of the millennial generation. TalentEgg extends a sincere thanks to all the professionals that participated in this event, and a special congratulations to the winners of the TalentEgg awards.
