Why apply?

Gain experience

Almost every career path requires critical thinking and analysis, and your experience as part of the elite student panel judging the TalentEgg awards will provide you with hands-on experience in breaking down, analyzing, and deciding on some of the most sophisticated recruitment campaigns in the country.

Let your voice be heard

This is your chance to share your thoughts and opinions on the way that employers recruit top students and grads like you. This is an egg-cellent opportunity to get in front of top Canadian employers and make valuable connections for your future career!

Learn about top employers and career options

Your analysis will delve deep into the recruitment campaigns of many of Canada’s top employers and nonprofits, allowing you to learn about the organizations and the career opportunities available for students and new graduates.

Get noticed

Although your individual comments will remain anonymous, the list of students and grads on the judging panel, including your name, program, (expected) graduation year, college or university, and email address, will be made available to all participating employers.

Become a Top Student Judge

After the judging process, we’ll be selecting 10 Top Student Judges who will be featured on our website, in our Annual Guide To Recruitment, and on our blog! How do you become a Top Student Judge? Give thorough, detailed and thoughtful feedback to top employers, submit your judging comments on time, and respond and communicate with the TalentEgg Awards team promptly.

Student Judging Process

Once selected as a Student Judge, you will be given a 1-week period to review employer, career centre and educational institution applications. You will read through each category, review the applicable submissions, comment on each individual submission and finally submit your vote on your top 3 choices (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) based on your review. Once the judging period has closed, you will receive a Certificate of Completion for completing the entire judging process. At that time, TalentEgg will also select the Top 10 Student Judges who will be featured in our Annual Guide to Recruitment, as well as on our website, blog and social media!
