Changing the face of Gen Y Employment

If you’re like most students today, you know that finding a job is difficult. The hardest part may be finding out what employers want, how they make the decisions they make and why they act the way they do.

When I began my job search earlier this year, I was immediately frustrated with the process. It seems like I was putting in tons of effort, time and money to make my applications perfect and not only was I not getting many calls for interviews, I usually wasn’t even given a standard email confirming employers actually received my application.

This job process is tough – so why not change it? That’s the idea behind TalentEgg‘s new project, Student Voice. It’s a program designed to help fight Gen Y under-employment by letting employers hear what students actually care about. Annoyed that most internships are unpaid? Want some application feedback? Think you deserve an interview and don’t know how to get it? Express yourself at http://talentegg.ca/studentvoice/shareyourstory/ and tell employers how you actually feel because they want to know! It’s in their best interest to hear from students and graduates who have experiences to share. If we all put our voices together, we’ll help change the way employers hire their employees and change the face of Gen Y employment.
