Latest Trends with the 2020 TalentEgg Guide to Canadian Recruitment

On July 8th, 2020 we were egg-cited to host the ninth annual TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference. Experts and professionals from the Canadian recruitment space joined us for a virtual conference packed with insightful panels, and of course, award celebrations!

All Awards and Conference attendees had a chance to download our 2020 TalentEgg Guide to Canadian Recruitment on the virtual conference platform. This year, the guide gives employers, careers centers and HR professionals crucial insights into recruiting students and new graduate job candidates during the COVID-19 pandemic; including best practices, and what matters most to students, new grads and early career professionals as a result of their drastically changing job environment.

If you missed out on the conference, you can still access TalentEgg’s key findings from our research and recruitment insights by downloading a copy of the guide below.

Here are some of the trending topics in the 2020 Guide:

  1. On-campus vs. Online: A look into the support students and grads are receiving from schools and the importance of employers showing up virtually.
  2. Employer branding and reputation management: How students were let go, how they feel about the communication received and will they work for you again in the future?
  3. What's important to students and grads right now: How to prioritize their learning, onboarding and work experience during COVID-19. New solutions in a virtual recruitment world
  4. Mental Health, the 'new normal', and the desired support that students, grads and early career professionals want moving forward in this virtual reality. 
  5. Social Responsibility, Volunteering and Staying Connected Virtually

Congratulations to the Winners of the 2020 TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference!

This is our 9th year hosting the annual TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference, but it was our first year hosting it virtually, and we gotta say — it was a blast!

On July 8th 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 annual student and new grad survey. 

Finally after weeks of anticipation, we also revealed the winners of the 2020 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!

We’re going VIRTUAL! Tickets now on sale for the 2020 TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards & Conference

This year we’re so egg-cited to host the TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards & Conference VIRTUALLY on July 8th, 2020! Visit our awards website for tickets and the upcoming agenda.

For the past 9 years, the TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards & Conference has provided an opportunity for employers, accredited universities and colleges, career centres, career educators and coaches to be recognized within the industry for their excellent employer branding, career education and recruitment initiatives; and to come together to share the latest recruitment trends.

This year we want to continue to bring you that same egg-citing experience and valuable information virtually, as the safety of our clients, sponsors, industry partners and conference attendees is our priority during this pandemic. We aim to bring our attendees fresh recruitment trends, COVID-19 survey results from students and new grads, engaging panel discussions and more, that you can enjoy from home!

What to expect from the TalentEgg virtual conference:

1. An interactive and versatile platform for attendees to get the full conference experience.

The conference will be hosted on an online platform  that allows attendees to tune into live virtual panel sessions and engage in real-time with speakers to ask questions, network with fellow attendees via chat groups and more! We will share best practices and guidelines to use the platform once you’ve purchased your tickets. 

2. Crucial information on the impact COVID-19 has had on students, new grads and early career professionals.

COVID-19 has impacted every industry in the past few months; the new grad and early career job market and recruitment sector in Canada is no exception. We surveyed our users to find out just how COVID-19 has impacted their job prospects, their career development, and their attitude to current and future employers. We can’t wait to share the trends we found and solutions moving forward. 

3. An egg-citing line up of panellists and speakers who are experts in the recruitment space.

Stay tuned for more speakers and panel topic announcements. 

Although we won’t have last year’s stunning Toronto view, we will have the latest recruitment trends to share. Here’s what last year’s attendees took away from the conference:
