Recently, our recruitment team attended the New Grad Expo, a career fair in Toronto that connects graduating students and recent graduates with employers on the Canada’s Top 100 Employers list. We talked to a lot of amazing young talent about what they’re looking for in a job. Here’s what some of them had to say on Twitter about why they’re eager to join the Rogers team:
Well, Lauren won’t be disappointed if she joins us here at Rogers one day. We are a proud Canadian company that is driven by innovation, technology and passion.
Our goal? To provide the latest and most innovative products and services and our employees are the ones who make this happen. We have career opportunities coast-to-coast in everything from media, broadcasting and digital, to engineering, IT, call centre support, operations and more! Our opportunities range from entry level to director level and beyond.
Because you’re where I can be an impact player
- David Soued @FundingTheK, Toronto
We have an amazing team full of highly motivated, action-oriented people whose daily contributions make a huge impact. Our employees have the power to make things happen and creativity is the norm.
We’re always looking for ways to improve; we work collaboratively and share ideas. Employees are encouraged to express their thoughts and ideas to management and leadership teams throughout the company.
Work hard, play hard
- Dan Howe, @dishwaan, Toronto
It’s true; our on-going success is a direct result of the efforts and contributions of our employees. But it’s not all work and no play: There are so many things going on! Many of our sites organize appreciation and cultural events and there are trips to sunny destinations to be won by top performers. Our crew is also active: each year there is a national fitness challenge, there are intramural sports teams, and volunteer/fitness participation in events such as the 100 KM bike “ride the Rideau” that runs from Ottawa to Merrickville. Even Rob Bruce, our President of Communications, joins close to 11,000 climbers, including other Rogers employees during the Enbridge CN tower Climb for United Way.
Community involvement is important at Rogers. We volunteer with local groups through Rogers Youth Fund, Rogers Pumpkin Patrol, and the United Way, as well as other initiatives like collecting for The Mustard Seed in our Western regions.
Rogers is a prominent leader offering LTE Technology to all our Canadian wireless customers
- Brian Veeren @BrianVeeren, Toronto
We work to deliver the best to our customers and we were the first in Canada to launch a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. We strive to be extraordinary and innovation is part of our core values. We work to develop creative new approaches, products, and services. If this sounds like your type of environment, visit our careers site to find the right opportunity for you. Thanks again to all the students and graduates who came out to visit our recruitment team at the Career Expo!
Tell me what are you looking for in a career, I’d love to hear!
