Last night’s Gen Y Recruitment Insider in Calgary was a huge success! Employers from the oil and gas industry, as well as employers representing finance, hospitality, retail and many more, joined us for an evening of networking, peer-to-peer learning, and two egg-cellent presentations.

The first presentation, by TalentEgg, shared data collected from employers across the country and showed how that data compares with what students want and need in campus recruitment. Many of the attendees were also curious about TalentEgg, so we were happy to give an overview of our history and what we do for our clients, some of whom were in the audience!

Our featured speaker, Helen Rol (Team Lead – Early Talent at Suncor Energy), was fantastic! She gave attendees an overview of Suncor’s campus strategy and outlined her “Aha!” moments along the way in her more than 20-year recruitment career. Helen was so engaging that the audience kept her on stage with numerous questions after her presentation.

Thank you to Helen and everyone who attended for making our Calgary event so egg-citing!
