To the TalentEgg community:
I’m extremely egg-cited to announce that TalentEgg Inc. has been acquired by CharityVillage Ltd., the largest and most popular job board for Canada’s nonprofit sector.
My TalentEgg journey started in 2008 when I was a recent university graduate experiencing the school-to-work transition firsthand. TalentEgg started modestly with the not-so-modest goal of providing a first-of-its-kind solution in Canada: A centralized online career resource and job board specifically for students and recent grads, offering career launching opportunities with industry leading employers.
TalentEgg has grown in many ways since 2008, and we continue to lead our industry through hard work, passion, and constant innovation. TalentEgg now attracts over 4 million students and recent grads each year and, as a company, works with many of Canada’s top employers – Accenture, CNRL, Enterprise Holdings, IBM, Kraft, KPMG, Northern Health Authority, P&G, RBC, Suncor, TJX and many others – to help them attract, target, and recruit students and recent grads.
Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of hearing many success stories from the TalentEgg community: a recent grad finding unexpected success in his career, spurred by an email blast he received from TalentEgg, a previously lost student thanking us for giving her direction and hope, a client being celebrated internally for her company’s success in using TalentEgg to recruit top grads, and many more.
The best part about my journey with TalentEgg is knowing that there are millions of other stories out there; TalentEgg has played and continues to play a significant role in helping students, grads and employers reach their potential.
Over the past 7+ years, I’ve told my TalentEgg story countless times – in presentations, to the media, and in casual conversations. But in reality, TalentEgg has long stopped being about my story. In fact, the journey is just beginning, and it couldn’t be in better hands.
Taking it to the next level
For the next several months I will be on board ensuring a smooth transition. More importantly, Steph Morgan, who is well known to many of you, will continue to drive the company forward. TalentEgg may have been my baby, but Steph ushered it through its adolescence and into adulthood – the company simply would not be what it is today without her.
To simply say that I’m “egg-cited” to see what Steph and our fantastic team will do, bolstered by the CharityVillage team, would be an understatement. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished to-date, but the future is even brighter for students, grads, and employers.
