Celebrating Black History Month

By Events and news

February 1st marks the start of Black History Month – a time where we celebrate and honour the achievements, stories, and legacy of Black Canadians. We are invited to learn about the contributions Black Canadians and their communities have made and continue to make within our society.

“Coming from a place where there are many ways in which African culture and festivals are celebrated, it is interesting to know that contributions made by people of African descent are recognized and celebrated in Canada as well.”

New Year Resolutions

By Events and news
For many of us, the New Year is a chance to not only reset and reflect on the year that passed, but also to set goals, create milestones, and plan for growth over the next 365 days. Considering the eventful, tumultuous, exhausting (and sometimes confusing) last couple of years, mental health, self-care, and work-life balance has shot-up the resolution lists for a lot of us. As for organizations and employers, taking care of their employees and ensuring a healthy and safe work environment will continue to be the priority for the year to come.

For Career Edge, welcoming the year of 2022 meant continuing our mission of creating meaningful, valuable, transforming, life-changing internship opportunities that empower individuals and launch careers that matter. As an organization, this is what we’re committing to for the year to come: Read More

Why is Career Edge is so important to me? By Jumana Baker

Read Jumana’s story, from a new grad to an essential part of Career Edge.




Jumana Baker

Marketing Design Specialist


My story with Career Edge started when I graduated from school. I had just finished four grueling years of studying, assignments, tests, projects and now I had to go out into the real world and find real employment. Only problem was, I had no idea how.

Everyone kept talking about networking and leveraging your family’s and your parents’ networks, making connections that way. Well, I’m an immigrant and so are my parents. We had moved to Canada when I first started university, so we were still rebuilding our lives and setting down roots. And at that point, my parents’ network that I could have leveraged was currently residing on the other side of the planet, so the family network was out.

So, I just started applying to positions. And, as many, many, many people have experienced, I didn’t hear back – that was fun…

Hiring During a Global Pandemic

By Employer

With the COVID-19 global pandemic, many businesses’ recruitment goals have drastically changed overnight. Some organizations are working through significantly increased demand for their products and services. Others are shifting their business operations to help support other in-demand industries. And most have closed their stores and offices in favor of e-commerce and work-from-home arrangements, prioritizing and urging for digital transformation.

Presented with the challenge of addressing the emerging and urgent business needs, while following social distancing recommendations, having a seamless remote recruitment strategy is more important than ever.

So how do you do it? Read More


Employee Engagement

By Employer

It’s time to tackle employee engagement. Conduct your research and gather strategies to boost team morale and maximize productivity.

Implement flex hours? Give extra vacation days? Team competitions and contests outside the office? All great ideas, but alone, they won’t work long-term. Rewards and perks are wonderful to offer, but that’s all they are: rewards and perks – temporary stopgaps designed to slow the drowning of a disengaged team sinking deeper and deeper. Think of the time Bart Simpson clogged the flooding submarine’s pinhole leak with his new, fancy earring – but in this scenario, you have a cantaloupe-shaped crack with only an Employee of the Week plaque in hand.
