Introducing the 2017 Guide to Canadian Campus Recruitment

The sixth annual TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference took place on Thursday, May 18th, 2017, and we are happy to say that it was an egg-cellent day of learning and collaborating on best practices in student and new graduate recruitment. The TalentEgg Awards and Conference is a special day for us, because it marks a moment when we bring together employers, campus recruitment professionals, and career educators for a day to discuss different approaches to supporting youth employment and professional development. We would like to sincerely thank everyone who joined us for the event, and we can’t wait to see you next year!

All Awards and Conference attendees were treated to a free copy of keynote speaker Brian Fetherstonhaugh’s latest book. Additionally, they also got to take home our 2017 Guide to Canadian Campus Recruitment. This valuable resource gives employers and HR professionals crucial insights into recruiting Gen-Y and Gen-Z job candidates, including best practices, tips on how to use social media effectively, and what matters most to students and new graduates when it comes to starting their careers.

If you missed out on the conference, you can still access TalentEgg’s key findings from our Gen-Z research and recruitment insights gained from our work with the Student Judges of the TalentEgg Awards! We’re offering a free digital download of the 2017 Guide to Canadian Campus Recruitment right here on TalentEgg 360.
