Yesterday, I took a bit of time to reflect on all the changes happening at TalentEgg, and attempted to look at our growth and the products we offer from an objective, 10,000 ft standpoint. The long and short of it is – you can expect a lot of continued (and maybe even ENHANCED) energy and enthusiasm from us. We’re aggressively building the content on the site, adding new, top quality employers all the time, and expanding and enriching the editorial and resource-content that accompanies it.

If you represent an employer and your company isn’t on TalentEgg yet, talk to us about what a profile on TalentEgg involves, and see how you can get on board. If you want more information in the mean time, check our new “employer info page”.

And if you’re a student or recent grad – talk to us! Post your questions in our discussion forum, and send us your feedback!
