And the award goes to… IBM!! Wait, I’m getting ahead of myself here! This past June, our IBM Canada Campus Talent Acquisition team attended the 2018 TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference in the heart of downtown Toronto, Canada.

The annual award ceremony and conference serves to highlight best practices in campus recruitment and allows an opportunity for employers to be recognized within the industry and amongst peers. Most importantly, the award submissions are judged by top students and recent graduates, which provides a great forum to gain valuable feedback on what candidates expect from potential employers. In the last three years, IBM has taken home several awards including Best Intern/Co-op Employer of the Year, Campus Recruiter of the Year, and Best New Graduate Program.

The morning started off with several panel discussions and a keynote on employer branding. I had the chance to speak on a panel discussing “Offline Innovations – How Top Employers are Connecting with Students on Campus,” where I shared some of IBM’s best practices in the campus space, including our Finish Line hiring events and IBM Days on campus.

After a very nerve-wracking wait, it was time for the final and top award of the day to be announced – “Best Recruiting Program of the Year”. Our table erupted in a scream of cheers when IBM was announced, and we made our way to the stage to accept the award.

This award truly serves as a testament to the hard-work of the entire North American Campus Talent Acquisition organization as we work to transform how we recruit and hire the best early professional talent into IBM. We look forward to continuing to bring top talent into IBM and provide students with the best recruitment experience possible!
