5 Ways Students Can Kickstart Their Job Search With TalentEgg


You’ve sent out countless resumes and cover letters, updated your social media profiles and prepared an online portfolio for potential employers. Yet you still haven’t landed an interview!

The digital job search is not an easy game to play. However, there are some things you can do to get ahead of the crowd and land your dream job! Here are some tips to help you maximize your job search efforts, without having to leave your laptop.

1. Create a TalentEgg account

Signing up for TalentEgg.ca gives you instant access to our database of internships, co-ops, summer jobs and entry level jobs from top Canadian employers. You also get the added benefit of being able to save jobs you’re interested in and receive reminder emails so you never miss a deadline. Lastly, you have the option of joining our mailing list, where you will be the first to hear about new career opportunities, online Q&A events, and more. In short, the opportunities come to you – all you have to do is check your inbox!

2. Sign up for Office Hours

Nope, not the kind with your English professor – I’m talking about TalentEgg’s Office Hours. These are online live chats with eggs-pert guests from top organizations. Want to know what a day in the life at an accounting firm is like? Or maybe you’re curious about what a healthcare recruiter is looking for in a new hire. You can get answers to these important career questions and more when you log on to an Office Hours event.

3. Watch some videos

That’s right, your YouTube habit can actually be productive – just trade the cat videos for company video profiles. TalentEgg has produced a ton of fun and informative videos that offer an inside look into a variety of industries. Check out interviews with new grads, recruiter tips, and more behind-the-scenes content that you won’t find anywhere else!

4. Attend a networking event

On the TalentEgg events page, you can find thousands of upcoming networking and recruitment events across Canada. Yes, this tip does require you to venture offline into the real world but registering is often as easy as clicking “attend event.” From company info sessions to grad school open houses, signing up for one of these events could be just the boost your job search has been needing.

5. Follow and “like” us on social media.

Every day TalentEgg posts about career opportunities, new articles, and other useful content to support your career goals. Whether it’s a motivational quote to get you through a stressful time or fun facts to give you valuable insight into a particular industry, TalentEgg’s social media accounts have everything you need to land the entry-level job of your dreams.
