Feed the Minds of Youth – November 1st, 2017
Each year on the first Wednesday in November, parents across Canada introduce their Grade 9 sons and daughters to their careers through The Learning Partnership’s annual Take Our Kids to Work Day. To complement this event, Feed the Minds of Youth luncheons are hosted at local Insurance Institutes and Chapters across the country. This event makes insurance accessible, engaging, and entertaining through speakers, games, and activities.
Career Connections supports these events with our materials and sourcing industry Ambassadors to be guest speakers. We also help companies welcoming Grade 9 students on-site to host their own events through our Feed the Minds of Youth Event-In-A-Box.
All told, this year saw 1100+ students at 70+ sites nationally (one of our largest audiences to date) participate in these events and learn about how they might find their place in insurance!

TalentEgg.Ca Office Hours
– November 9th, 2017
A great opportunity for us to engage between 400 – 600 post-secondary students and new graduates in a virtual Career Chat! Career Connections team members will be on hand to answer burning questions about the industry, highlight resources, and help you connect your education, interests, and experience to the wide array of roles that insurance has to offer.
TalentEgg.ca is Canada’s leading career resource for students. We have a strong and now long tenured relationship with TalentEgg and in addition to two other office hour sessions this year, we will also be releasing some great day-in-a-life profiles featuring insurance professionals and articles on emerging trends in the industry throughout the year!

Careers in Insurance Webinar – November 30th, 2017
