Toronto's TalentEgg Aims to Solve Youth Unemployment in Canada with #HireGenY Day on Twitter

Canda's online career resource for students, TalentEgg, has launched a campaign today called Hire Gen Y Day. Designed for Twitter, the #HireGenY hashtag will drive TalentEgg's ambition to reduce youth unemployment.

Youth unemployment in Canada is nearly 15%—or almost double the total jobless rate of just over 7%. "Students and recent graduates across the country are entering into one of the most difficult job markets in recent history," a TalentEgg statement reads.
