Introducing the 2018 Guide to Canadian Campus Recruitment – Decoding Gen-Z

The seventh annual TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference took place on Tuesday, June 26th, 2018, 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, nonprofits, 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 got to take home our 2018 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-Y and 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 2018 Guide to Canadian Campus Recruitment right here!

Announcing the Winners of TalentEgg’s 2017 Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards

Since 2012, we here at TalentEgg have hosted the annual Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference and each year we are continually amazed by the insights of our noted panelists, the energy of our participants, and the all around quality of the content being shared!

For those of you that came out to the Design Exchange May 18th, we’re sure you’ll agree that this year was certainly no eggs-ception! In fact, it may just be our best yet (if we do say so ourselves).

Every spring, we gather professionals from across Canada to recognize and honour the many strengths these top employers possess when it comes to recruitment practices and building authentic, meaningful relationships with students and grads. With a dozen awards being given out this year, there is clearly much to celebrate!

Adding to our established categories such as “Best Campus Career Website” and “Best Internship/Co-op Program,” we were especially excited to introduce two new categories to the awards portion of the day, including our “Best Campus Ambassador Program,” which recognizes exceptional employers whose ambassador programs are facilitating key dialogues between students and employers, and our “Special Award for Social Responsibility in Recruiting,” which honors our most socially conscious organizations, whose hiring practices are committed to incorporating policies of inclusion, sustainability, community outreach, accessibility, diversity and more.

In addition to these exciting new introductions to our awards line-up, we were also honoured to welcome the esteemed Brian Fetherstonhaugh, whose keynote address, “How to Become a Magnetic Talent Enterprise” included some truly compelling insights and observations.

After an exceptional kick-off, our conference continued with some key industry insights and spirited discussions into how employers may best connect with today’s students and recent grads. We’d like to extend a huge thank you to those who participated, and our congratulations to this year’s award nominees. You’re all winners to us!

The TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference is Almost Here!

It’s officially spring in Canada, and along with the showers and flowers comes the sixth edition of TalentEgg’s National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference! We’re excited to host what is sure to be another eggs-ceptional event, and we hope you’ll share in our enthusiasm as we celebrate the best of the best in recruitment with some of Canada’s top employers.

This year we’ll also be bringing together “technology and talent” with this year’s keynote speaker Brian Fetherstonhaugh, Chairman and CEO of OgilvyOne Worldwide. Brian Fetherstonhaugh is a Marketing and recruitment expert and leads a global workforce of 5800 people. The median age at OgilvyOne Worldwide is 29 years old, so he knows a thing or two about hiring and managing young talent. Brian calls his recruitment theory the “Power of Magnetism.”

Also, Brian’s passion about inspiring and leading young professionals is reflected in his award winning book, The Long View: Career Strategies to Start Strong, Reach High, and Go Far. which includes insights and advice for developing their career in an increasingly competitive and digital age. Every full day delegate to the conference will receive a copy of the book as TalentEgg’s gift!
