Video blog: Get involved with TalentEgg in 2010


Over two years ago, when I started working on TalentEgg, I had a really clear mission – helping students and recent grads find meaningful, career-launching opportunities. TalentEgg’s mission has remained constant as we’ve grown, and executing on that mission has been a very egg-citing adventure.

It’s primarily involved building a team and fantastic support network internally in order to:

  1. find the best jobs and employers
  2. compile and constantly update a resource section that is useful
  3. put together the best website possible to help you figure out that tough transition from school to work

Here’s what you can look forward to in 2010

Community features

Have you seen TalentEgg’s new Answers section? You can now ask your tough job hunt questions and participate in crowd sourcing the best responses.

Video, Video, Video

This is our first video blog ever. Yay! We know it’s a little rough around the edges, but like everything we do here at TalentEgg, practice makes perfect. One of our New Year’s resolutions is to have more video on the website, so you can expect video blogs from the team, chats with your fellow students and new grads on issues that are important to you, and helpful tips and tricks from employers and career experts to help you launch your career.

Employer round tables

We’re planning some exclusive meetings between top Canadian employers and students and new grads like you.

About the author

Lauren Friese is the founder of She graduated from Queen's University in 2005 with a degree in economics and had no idea how to make a successful transition into the workforce. She ended up at the LSE in London, England, and after earning an MSc in economic history, used – a British graduate recruitment website – to find a great entry-level role in consulting in London. She thought Milkround was fantastic, and that it was a service sorely lacking in Canada. And so the idea for TalentEgg was hatched!
