North American Inclusion Month

By General

Abbreviated in length, but inspired by change, February is a time to do more, with less.

The National Jewish Council for Disabilities established North American Inclusion Month to recognize the need for more opportunities for people with disabilities. The initiative aims to do more than just improve our understanding of a person with a disability’s needs and aspirations for 28 days. It aspires to create action toward change, and to produce a more positive approach that prevails for 365. Read More

Career Edge Employers on Indeed’s Top 25

By General, Jobseeker

For the first time, the job site Indeed released a list of the 25 best places to work in Canada, 14 of which Career Edge has placed an intern at, including every employer in the top five (RBC, Toronto Transit Commission, TELUS, General Motors, and Hospital for Sick Children).

The survey considered 600,000 reviews from Canadian employees between June 2015 and May 2017. Only companies receiving at least 50 reviews were eligible. The survey was based on five categories: pay & benefits, work-life balance, workplace advancement, opportunities within the company, and management & culture.
