Canada's most popular job board and online career resource for students and recent graduates.

Recruit Top Talent!

What users want

When we returned from the holiday ‘break’ at the beginning of January, I sent an email out to all registered TalentEgg users asking “What can we do better?”

We got tons of responses and have already gotten to work implementing and taking action on the requests, suggestions, and ideas.

Some people told us about specific programs and employers they wanted to see, ranging from the ‘big guys’, to requests for more presence from certain industries, like Media and Advertising:

“I will like to more about graudation rotation programs, and companies like Bell, Rogers, TD, RBC, BMO ”

“What I’d really like to see is more creative jobs with employers like Adobe and Ubisoft. It’s very difficult to find jobs in the ‘creative’ feild.”

Others offered encouragement for our new initiatives:

“I’m looking forward to seeing what video aspects will be included on the site for 2010! Mostly, I have really enjoyed reading the articles and find them helpful/motivational.”

A few recent grads and students told us what features they’d like added to the site:

“Develop a mobile app!”

..And there were also people who took the time to thank us. Honestly, comments like these make my day (week! month!)

“Thank you for starting up Talent Egg, it is really a great resource for new grads like myself who are struggling to find meaningful work!!!”

“I think what you’re doing is amazing. Your website really helps students find great and meaningful jobs. Kudos to you!”
