Today, TalentEgg, Canada’s leading online career resource for students and new grads, announced its renewed partnership with CEOx1Day, Odgers Berndtson’s annual leadership program that gives third and fourth-year university students an opportunity to spend a day with some of the country’s top CEOs.
To the partnership, TalentEgg once again brings exclusive access to its nationwide network of career-focused students, as Odgers Berndtson continues to provide an unparalleled professional opportunity that exposes selected candidates to a rigorous recruitment process mirroring that of an executive search.
“We are delighted to continue the partnership, bringing students an opportunity to participate in an unparalleled leadership development program and helping Odgers Berndtson recruit the best and the brightest candidates for CEOx1Day.” said Mary Barroll, President of TalentEgg.
Now in its fifth consecutive year, the CEOx1Day Program matches ambitious third and fourth-year students with one of 19 top executives from the country’s leading organizations. This year, finalists will be matched with CEOs from Kellogg’s, PayPal, the David Suzuki Foundation, the Ottawa Senators, and more.
TalentEgg looks forward to providing an authentic youth voice in the campaign’s coverage for the second year in a row, and will once again provide educational resources and insider access to the various recruitment phases to its talent network.
Of the renewed partnership, Jacqueline Foley, Chief Marketing Officer at Odgers Berndtson said, “TalentEgg is a wonderful partner that helps us connect with top students across the country. As a key career resource for young talent, TalentEgg shares in our philosophy that there is nothing more important than developing Canada’s future leaders. They have done a great job in helping us get the word out about our CEOx1Day program and the tremendous mentoring and learning opportunity it offers to students who are just starting to think about their careers.”
