Poll results: Have you ever attended a career fair on your campus?

Our survey of campus recruitment professionals showed that 75% of them will attend zero-to-5 on-campus career fairs this year, and perhaps one of the reasons for that is employers are realizing that the majority of students do not attend them.

The results of a recent TalentEgg homepage poll show that while two thirds of students have attended a career fair at some point, only one third found the experience valuable enough to want to go again in the future.

Poll results: When do students look for entry level jobs?

TalentEgg has long suspected that there is a discrepancy between when students look for entry-level jobs and when employers are recruiting and hiring for the majority of their entry-level jobs, however the results of our latest poll confirm it. We asked students and recent graduates:

Poll results: What is most important to students in a summer internship?

With many students soon starting their summer internships now that classes are over, we recently featured a poll on our homepage that asked:

What is most important to you in a summer internship?

You might think that “high pay” might be most important to students considering all the hype about student loans and unpaid internships these days, but it actually came in a distant second:

Only 20% said high pay was most important.

It turns out that “meaningful experience” tops earning big bucks:

Nearly two thirds of students (59%) said it was the most important thing to them in a summer internship.

The three other options each received a small share of the votes: 11% said the reputation of the employer was the most important; 6% chose mentorship as most important; and only 4% said a flexible schedule was most important to them in a summer internship.


Do these results mirror the strategies behind your summer internships? With the vast majority of students seeking meaningful experience during their summer internships, will you provide the experience they’re looking for? Or are you going a step further by offering meaningful experience AND high pay?

What does “meaningful experience” mean to you, and is it what you would have chosen as most important?

Poll results: When do students start looking for summer jobs?

We recently featured a poll on our homepage that asked students:

When did you start looking for your next summer job?

While a little less than one third of students (29%) said they were pro-active and started looking for their next summer job before the holidays, the vast majority – two thirds (67%) – of students were summer job hunting during the polling period, from January 21 through March 28.

A small minority of students, just 4%, said they weren’t going to start looking for their next summer job until later.


Do these results match up with the periods during which you recruit students for your summer jobs?


What do you think about these results? Have you experienced any success summer job hunting in January, February or March, or do you think the best summer jobs go to students who start searching in the fall?


Today we start a new poll the homepage, asking: What is most important to you in a summer internship?
