Congratulations to the Winners of the 2021 TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference!

This is our 10th year hosting the annual TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference, and we gotta say — it might have been our best one yet!

On June 16th, several top campus recruitment professionals from across Canada joined us on our virtual journey to discuss, share and reveal how COVID-19 has impacted the recruitment sector temporarily and in some cases, for good. Attendees got the chance to hear about new virtual on-boarding methods, and new virtual strategies to attract the next generation of the workforce. 

We also shared some incredible findings from the TalentEgg COVID-19 survey and our annual student and new grad recruitment guide. 

Finally after weeks of anticipation, we also revealed the winners of the 2021 TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards at the event. It was a tight competition with so many egg-cellent applications by leading Canadian employers, educational institutions, and career centres to look at. However, a select few stood out to our Student Judges for their egg-ceptional work and creativity.

Congratulations to the winners and finalists of the TalentEgg Awards and a sincere thank you to all the professionals who participated in this event!

Last week's Focus on Retail event was a huge success

Last week was amazing! We would like to thank everyone who helped us plan and put on our very first industry focus: Focus on Retail.

We published some great articles such as A career in retail is a great fit for students with a passion for fashion and 6 major retail career paths to help bring further awareness to students interested in getting into the industry. Don’t forget to check out some of the fun video blogs we posted.

TalentEgg also had the pleasure of hosting a seminar at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Retail Management with first-year retail management students and recruiting managers from Starbucks Coffee Canada, Enterprise and Reitmans (Canada) Ltd.

Check out this second clip from the event:

There are also still some great retail career opportunities posted on the site from our sponsors: Reitmans, Sears, The Source, Enterprise and Starbucks. Be sure to take a look!

We currently have three industry focus events in mind for the future:

  • Sept. 6-10, 2010: Focus on Engineering
  • Sept. 20-24, 2010: Focus on Sales/Marketing
  • Oct. 4-8, 2010: Focus on Accounting/Finance

If you have any feedback on the Focus on Retail event, or on TalentEgg in general, be sure to leave us a comment!

Exciting things going on at TalentEgg in March!

As usual, the past few weeks have been very exciting here at TalentEgg.  Firstly, we would like to give a warm welcome to two new TalentEgg clients, The Source and Starbucks. Be sure to keep checking back for great job postings from these two great companies!

Also, TalentEgg’s founder, Lauren Friese, has recently been taking some fun road trips across Ontario to McMaster University, York University, the University of Toronto Mississauga, University of Toronto Scarborough and Queens!

Check out this video of Lauren from the Impact Innovate 2010 Conference at Queen’s University on March 6 where she spoke with students about entrepreneurship:

 

Don’t forget about our Focus on Retail event, which will take over TalentEgg next week, from March 22-26

Focus on RetailVisit TalentEgg.ca daily for amazing content on everything from debunking the misconceptions about starting a career in retail to exploring the career paths in retail available to Canadian students and recent grads. We will also be showcasing meaningful job opportunities from some of Canada’s top retail employers, including Starbucks, Reitmans, Sears, The Source and Enterprise.

If you have any questions for retail employers, submit them as a comment on this post or send them to us on Twitter because we’ll be at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Retail Management next week to host a Q&A panel featuring retail professionals.

We would also love to start posting more entries on TalentEgg’s blog to better inform YOU about the great benefits our website has to offer so if you have any great ideas, let us know!
