The TalentEgg story

TalentEgg was founded by Lauren Friese after she and many of her friends experienced difficulty transitioning from school to work. Upon graduating from Queen's University with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics in 2005, Lauren wasn't sure exactly what to do next. Like many students, she opted for grad school, attending the London School of Economics in the UK.

There, she discovered, it was much easier to make the transition thanks to a number of career websites that allowed her to research job opportunities and browse free resources. She got a job in consulting in London, but she couldn't help but wonder why there was nothing like this available in Canada to help students start their careers.

In her spare time, she started researching, calling and planning, and eventually left her consulting job to move back to Canada and start TalentEgg. The first version of the website launched in April 2008, and today TalentEgg is the definitive leader in online campus recruitment in Canada.

Along the way, both TalentEgg and Lauren have earned numerous awards for their success, innovation and positive impact on students, and Lauren has become a well-respected leader on issues relating to youth employment and campus recruitment.

Campus Recruitment 360

Campus Recruitment 360 by TalentEgg logo

Campus Recruitment 360 by TalentEgg is an award-winning resource hub and community for campus recruiters and HR professionals where you can learn and share ideas, tips, tricks and best practices for excellence in campus recruitment.

The mission of Campus Recruitment 360 by TalentEgg is to be the home of useful, actionable content for the professional campus recruitment community.

A huge part of TalentEgg’s strategy to bridge the gap between Gen Y and employers has included providing content – articles, videos, interviews, etc. – to help guide students through the process of transitioning from school to work. The how-to articles, recruiter tips and new grad success stories have helped them feel inspired and more prepared to tackle the daunting task of finding a meaningful, career-related job.

We soon realized, however, that similar resources were in demand from campus recruiters and human resources professionals who were constantly searching for better ways to attract, target and recruit top students and recent graduate talent.

Leveraging our unique position at the intersection of students and employers, TalentEgg has produced hundreds of articles, events and presentations for employers on these topics over the years
