Recruit Top Talent!

TalentEgg’s #HireGenY Day Was A Huge Success!

Yesterday was one of the most egg-citing days yet here at TalentEgg – we launched the first ever #HireGenY Day, an ambitious, all-day conversation on Twitter between employers, students, career professionals and other thought leaders in the industry on issues related to campus recruitment and student job hunting.

By all accounts, the day was a huge success: there were nearly 200 participants from across the country who added their voices to the conversation, resulting in over 500 tweets!

According to TweetReach, #HireGenY Day reached a total of 108,567 people, resulting in 679,161 impressions!

#HireGenY Day was also featured on Techvibes and in The Toronto Star!

The TalentEgg team would like to thank everyone who participated – we appreciate you taking the time to ask and answer questions, share your experiences, and offer your expert advice! We’ve already received some amazing feedback from both students and employers alike who say they got a lot out of the discussions that took place.

We will be doing some more in-depth recaps of #HireGenY Day here on the blog for employers, and on the Career Incubator for students and recent graduates, in the coming weeks.

The Toronto Star compiled some of the early highlights on Storify last night:
