Announcing the winners of the 2016 Achievement Awards…

By | General

Career Edge’s Achievement Awards recognize the success of accomplished individuals and leading organizations that partner with us to provide meaningful employment opportunities, helping us to launch more careers in Canada. We also salute our interns and the people behind them – the mentors who help enhance the internship experience.

This year, we took a personalized approach and celebrated the Achievement Awards through various events held over the months of May and June, in partnership with the winners and finalists. We also recognized the organizations and individuals who have demonstrated leadership and cultivated innovative employment solutions, allowing more people to make an investment in their career.

Talent Screening video interviews – now on-demand!

By | General

Video-based talent screening has revolutionized how we review and assess candidates seeking access to paid internship opportunities. Many of our employer partners have also taken advantage of these pre-recorded video interviews, as a compliment to their existing recruitment best practices.

We’re happy to share that we have now made these videos on-demand. Previously, links to selected candidate videos would be sent via e-mail upon request, but now they are accessible directly from the list of applications, for every candidate.

We have also made it easier for you to meet candidates from our newest internship program for Canadian Armed Forces Reservists by launching the Career Edge Video Gallery Portal. Log in using the same account details that you use to access careeredge.ca and you can browse through our video gallery of Reservists seeking civilian employment opportunities within the community of their reserve unit.

The Importance of Mentoring for New Immigrants in Canada

By | Jobseeker

By guest contributor and former Career Edge intern Sujit Das, CPA, CGA, ACA

In every stage of our life, we embrace with some torch bearers who show the path. They may either be parents, teachers, leaders, senior peer groups, colleagues, friends or others.  Parents embed the norms of behavior and code of conduct in our blood which can simply be said as ‘Charity begins at home’. Afterwards, our ‘SHIKKHAGURU’ that is, ‘teachers’ in educational institutions shape our lives to materialize our aims and to be a good human being. Peer groups, colleagues, friends and others also help to reconcile the up and down sides of practical and career life, advise how we can rectify our norms or behavior to achieve a desired result. We are facing many bumps from starting education in primary school to a work life in work culture that are well known to all of us.
