“TalentEgg Challenges” to help students gain career experience

February 28, 2014

TalentEgg.ca, an online career resource geared towards students and recent grads, has launched a new platform to help Canadian youth gain the experience they need to find meaningful employment. The “TalentEgg Challenges” platform asks students to solve challenges set by businesses. Students then receive a review of the skills and experiences gained through each challenge, which can be added to their resume or LinkedIn profile. Top performers in each challenge are eligible to win a range of prizes, including employment opportunities, cash, and career-related experiences. "Historically, acquiring meaningful work experience has been very difficult, especially for the 96% of students not enrolled in co-op programs," says TalentEgg.ca Founder Lauren Friese. "With TalentEgg Challenges, students and grads - no matter where they're located or what they're studying - can use the platform to prove their skills and aptitude to employers and stand out in a challenging, competitive job market."
