TORONTO, ON, September 15, 2016 — Today, TalentEgg, an online career resource for students and recent graduates, announced its partnership with CEO x 1 Day, a nationwide program delivered by global executive search firm, Odgers Berndtson, which gives third and fourth-year students from universities and degree-granting college programs the opportunity to shadow the country’s top CEOs for a day.
Together, TalentEgg and CEO x 1 Day will innovate and expand on CEO x 1 Day’s existing recruitment process by opening up applications to TalentEgg’s national network of students, expanding the breadth of the competition and providing access to the best possible candidates.
TalentEgg’s robust relationship with Canada’s student community will support CEO x 1 Day’s efforts to uncover the country’s future leaders, in turn, matching top students with unparalleled career and leadership development opportunities at highly regarded organizations nationwide. Jacqueline Foley, Chief Marketing Officer at Odgers Berndtson Canada and executive in charge of CEO x 1 Day said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with TalentEgg to increase our outreach to this next generation of leaders and to be sharing some of the great insights that come from our participating CEOs and the students who shadow them.”
Students and grads want a variety of ways to connect with potential employers.
But out of all the options available, networking events reign supreme. In fact, 78% of our student panel picked this type of event over others like information sessions and career fairs. It makes sense why this would be the case: if you’re trying to get hired, getting face time with a recruiter can be invaluable. Additionally, even if you don’t land the gig, establishing that relationship might open other doors down the road.
But it’s not only students and new grads who benefit from these kinds of events! Networking enables recruiters to ask the thoughtful questions that allow you to get to know potential candidates on a deeper level; something that is not always possible at more high-volume engagements.
However, if you really want to stand out to your talent pool, try attending or hosting one of the following events!
