TalentEgg launches #HireGenY Day on Twitter

Toronto, ON (RPRN) 03/28/12 — With the youth unemployment rate in Canada sitting at 14.7 per cent, nearly double the total jobless rate of 7.4 per cent, students and recent graduates across the country are entering into one of the most difficult job markets in recent history as they begin searching for summer and entry level jobs this April.

Today, TalentEgg is launching #HireGenY Day, an ambitious, all-day conversation between employers, post-secondary students, career professionals and other thought leaders in the industry on the social networking platform Twitter.

“Students and recent graduates need to know they’re not alone - there are thousands of others across Canada who are currently experiencing the same challenges,” says Lauren Friese, founder of TalentEgg. “Hire Gen Y Day is an opportunity for students to connect with each other - and with top employers - online in a meaningful way.”
