Presenting The Winners Of The 2019 TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards

2019 marks the eighth edition of our annual TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference, and we must say that this was our best one yet!

On June 19th, campus recruitment professionals from across Canada gathered at the Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto to celebrate the best in the industry. Attendees got the chance to hear exclusive insights on campus recruitment and learn about cutting-edge strategies for connecting with today’s tech-savvy students and new grads.

Among our lineup of expert panelists and speakers was author, speaker, and behaviour-change specialist Gregg Brown. His keynote speech, “Ready…Set…Change AGAIN, Building Change Resilience in HR” was a fabulous way to inspire attendees to change their mindset in the workplace, and set themselves and their recruits up for success.

We were also so pleased to announce the launch of our two new products: TE University, our brand new eLearning platform and TalenEgg Candidate Video Showcase – coming Fall 2019.

“This was our first year attending the TalentEgg conference and it was awesome – it was so great to connect with many industry professionals and learn a lot more about campus recruitment and what other organizations and companies are doing to really attract students to their organizations. We’re getting really excited about campus season and prepping for the fall of 2019 so we look forward to seeing all of the students and new grads and co-ops out on campus in the fall.”

– Carly Suter, Campus Recruitment Coordinator, Intact

After weeks of anticipation, we revealed the winners of the 2019 TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Awards at the event, and for the first time ever, on Facebook Live! We received many top-notch applications from leading Canadian employers, educational institutions, and career centres, making it an extremely tight competition!

4 Campus Recruitment Lessons We Learned From Popular Teen App Musical.ly

The modern workforce is changing and fast.

Baby Boomers are retiring in droves, older millennials are rising into management positions, and Generation Z (those born roughly between 1994 and 2010), are starting their first internships and co-op placements. So, if you’re hiring students and new grads, it’s time to start considering how to engage this new generation.

To start, we can learn a lot about a demographic by analyzing the digital spaces they occupy. Similar to how millennials are seen as the “selfie” generation, Generation Z’s online habits reveal quite a lot about their interests and motivations. While they’re “digital natives” just like Gen-Y, where and how they spend their time online is a little different than the generation that came before. For instance, while millennials are defined by first-generation social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, younger teens are flocking to video-based mobile platforms like Snapchat.

To gain more insight, we dug a little deeper into the rise of the latest popular teen app, Musical.ly. This Instagram-meets-Vine style program invites users creating their own videos to accompany a selection of songs served up by the app. It’s clearly popular: Musical.ly has hit #1 in the App Store charts in 19 countries and is even spawning its own set of celebrities, similar to Instagram and YouTube before it.

Here’s what Musical.ly taught us about Gen-Z and campus recruitment.
