As speaker Jennie An stated, data isn’t always the most egg-citing topic.
But she certainly managed to spice it up at this year’s TalentEgg Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards & Conference, with an engaging presentation that covered a range of topics – from the 2016 Census, to Justin Trudeau and pandas. However, it was her main story of successfully building a campus recruitment measurement tool from scratch that truly captured our audience’s attention.
So what does it take to create such a resource? Lucky for us, Jennie broke it down into four easy steps.
Co-op programs can be a valuable recruitment tool for companies of all shapes and sizes.
However, a successful employer co-op initiative needs to offer a mix of informative training, hands-on work, and fun – and it can be tricky to strike the right balance between the three.
Benefits of co-op programs for employers
- Fresh perspectives. By hiring students on a regular basis, you can take advantage of the continuous supply of new and creative approaches to your business.
- Meet staffing challenges. Is it a busy period for your company? Co-op students can provide support with entry-level tasks and alleviate the strain on your full-time staff.
- Share your knowledge. Get the opportunity to mentor bright and enthusiastic students and share your expertise with the next generation of leaders.
- Tax credits. There are several incentives available for employers to offset the cost of hiring a co-op student. Check your regional government’s website for more information!
Luckily, here at TalentEgg, we get the chance to connect with co-op students from a variety of different organizations and gain feedback on their likes and dislikes. Over the years, we’ve noticed a couple of big trends that contribute to a co-op student’s satisfaction, and success, in their role.
If you want to create an egg-ceptional co-op program, here are the 3 things you need to do.
