Our friends over at Business.com recently shared this fascinating infographic outlining some of the reasons employers may want to consider using background checks.
What do you think: Are employers that don’t utilize background checks setting themselves up for disaster? Or are background checks mostly unnecessary at the entry level?
We believe that the school-to-work transition is difficult and messy for students and new graduates. Attracting and hiring students and new graduates is also difficult and messy for employers, who often travel across the country to attract top students. TalentEgg was created to provide access to meaningful opportunities for students and new graduates, coast to coast, and to provide an efficient way for employers and organizations to reach students who increasingly use the web to research their careers.
The Canadian version of TalentEgg – TalentEgg.ca – was hatched 4 years ago by me, Lauren Friese. I am a Queen’s University and London School of Economics graduate from Toronto, Ontario, who saw the need for an online career resource that would help both students and employers with this problem.
Since then, TalentEgg.ca has dominated the Canadian campus recruitment market, quickly becoming the most popular career website for students and recent graduates (and for employers to attract and recruit students and recent graduates).
We have exponentially more traffic, more jobs, more employers and more career resources than any other youth employment site in Canada. In 2012, we’re egg-cited to launch our U.S. site, TalentEgg.com, and we’ll be working our shells off to continue our success in the U.S. as well as Canada!
Many of the top employers we work with in Canada and others will be joining us on TalentEgg.com in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
