TalentEgg’s “Working Knowledge” In The Globe And Mail’s 2012 Canadian University Report Today


For the second year in a row, TalentEgg has contributed the Working Knowledge section to The Globe and Mail’s Canadian University Report.

Our content team spent the summer interviewing recent graduates about their experience transitioning from the classroom to their career and employers about what they look for when hiring entry-level employees.

We also researched and wrote about interesting university programs, career outlooks, average salaries and in-demand jobs.

The 2012 edition of the report was released today and, once again, Working Knowledge features a careers-focused look at the links between undergraduate degrees and employment, arranged by seven fields of study:

Thank you to all of the amazing recent grads who shared their “from class to career” stories with us and the rest of Canada, as well as the generous employers who provided us with invaluable info about what they’re looking for when they hire students and recent grads:  Northern Health, Procter & Gamble, Chubb Insurance Company of Canada, CPP Investment Board, PwC, Sun Life Financial, Accenture, Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games, TD Business Banking, Nexen, Hydro One, Intel, BHP Billiton, Suncor, Trillium Health Centre, Belfry Theatre, Stratford Shakespeare Festival, LifeLabs, Maple Leaf Foods, Algorithmics, Memorial University and Peel District School Board.

This year, Working Knowledge was written by Danielle Lorenz, Vicky Tobianah, Alanna Glass and Cassandra Jowett, and edited by Cassandra Jowett.
