TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TalentEgg, Canada’s premier online job board and career resource focusing on students, recent grads and early career professionals, announced the launch of TalentEgg Candidate Video Showcase, a first-of-its-kind nationwide visual service in Canada for employers to connect with and recruit young talent. TalentEgg Candidate Video Showcase is part of the features available on TalentEgg’s platform to help Gen Y and Z candidates get noticed by recruiters and succeed in their job search during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
The Candidate Video Showcase allows job seekers to upload their resume and record a video introduction for free on a searchable database for employers to find candidates that they may have missed in their recruitment outreach.
“Social distancing measures implemented to control the spread of COVID-19 and the transition to ‘work from home’ have transformed the recruitment process,” said Mary Barroll, president at TalentEgg. “Employers are increasingly looking for soft skills that make employees more resilient and adaptive as well as adding more diverse talent to their teams who reflect Canadian society. TalentEgg’s Candidate Video Showcase offers a solution for both — supporting employers’ diversity and inclusion strategies as well as offering insight into candidates’ soft skills in communication and presentation.”
The video showcasetool also helps accelerate recruiting as it provides important insight into the candidate’s personality and career goals, reducing screening steps in the hiring process. Additionally, as many employers plan to maintain remote work settings beyond the COVID-19 pandemic and employees’ physical location continues to lose relevance, recruiters will increasingly look to select talent based on skillsets rather than limiting their search to local candidates only. The TalentEgg Candidate Video Showcase helps recruiters connect with individuals across provinces in a format that allows both their professional and personal skills to shine through.
“TalentEgg’s Candidate Video Showcase gives employers and recruiters the opportunity to meet talent from across the country in one central location and get a sense of the knowledge, skills and attitude that each candidate brings to the table,” said Trevor Buttrum, program manager at Career Connections. “The video is what brings life into the candidate’s application.”
Candidates can upload their CVs and record a video introduction for free on TalentEgg’s website: https://talentegg.ca/candidate-showcase. Employers interested in accessing the Candidate Video Showcase can learn more at https://employers.talentegg.ca/candidate-showcase.
