In my last post, I mentioned that we had tricks up ‘our sleave’, but I didn’t really say what those were. Mostly because at the time, a lot of things were coming together…in ‘incubation‘, you might say. Today I am happy to report that TalentEgg has evolved significantly since my last post, and we have lots to report.
In a very short while, and in the midst of some tricky economic times, we have managed to accomplish quite a bit:
- We launched The Incubator: The Incubator is an online, social career magazine providing personal and specific career advice, tips, and stories. So far, we have a team of over 10 amazing contributors and one particularly awesome editor (Cassandra!). Look out for our first ‘digest’ at the end of this month. The theme? “The class of 2009: Graduating in a recession”.
- We got involved with a very exciting video series through UTours. Still in production. On the topic of The Job Hunt.
- We began booking some serious speaking engagements. Over the next few months I will be presenting for The Conference Board of Canada, The Campus Recruiting Forum, and CHAT high school (:)), as well as putting on two 3-hour workshops on the 4 generations in the workforce in Newfoundland!
And this is all aside from the great content that is continuously popping up on the main TalentEgg.ca site. Today we were talking about how we have so many ‘Recent additions’ to TalentEgg on a weekly basis that we’re going to have to add a scroll bar to that section of the site!
- With the addition of The Incubator to the TalentEgg family, we’ve gone from being ‘like a campus career fair, online’ to being ‘like a campus career centre, online’.
- With the launch of a media outlet geared at 18-24 year olds (The Incubator), and the launch of our consulting/speaking projects, we’ve gone from being a 1-product company to a 3-product company.
