It can be so much easier to see life is going better when the days are long and the sun is shining; but God is not only the God of the summer and bright days when everything seems easier. He is God of the dull winter days when all hope seems to fade and when oppotunities seem to fade. God will show His power and provision in the darkest most unlikely times because He cares and He is God.

First off, watch in 720p!! Secondly, this is a send off to Virginia Tech and the town of Blacksburg, a magical place I owe so much to. I never truly appreciated it until I stayed for one last summer, forgoing the job search and taking a chance at filmmaking. Hopefully, this video inspires you to explore and discover there is so much more to Virginia Tech and Blacksburg than you think…. The video is supposed to be about a student who falls asleep in class and dreams about going outside and enjoying the summer only to wake up in class at the end. Since no school would let me reshoot the beginning and final scenes, I’m compelled to simply post it, and let the love of a Blacksburg summer stand for itself. Thanks to everyone who helped me and to Theta Chi Fraternity for letting me live in the backyard and in my van all summer. Many thanks to the members of the Virginia Tech Caving, Rock Climbing, Kayaking, and Outdoor clubs who helped me out, and to TOTS for letting me film there. Partially in thanks to this video, I now have a summer gig with NOLS as a video production intern, so stick around for the videos I make with them. I promise they’ll be worth the wait, and be sure to share the video if you liked it!! Now get outside, and go Hokies! -Matt (class of 2011) Filmed entirely with the GoPro HD

With summer just around the corner, many students and recent grads are still looking for ways to spend their time while getting a meaningful experience. In this video, TalentEgg founder Lauren Friese tells Canadas Next Top Ad Exec finalists about some of the must dos of job hunting. She explains the importance of networking and taking advantage of social media as well as offers a few tips on how you can stand out a get noticed! 1. Cast your net wide and deep * Take stock of tools available to help your with your job search. These can include your network, job boards, Google, your career centre and (of course!) TalentEgg. 2. Broadcast your availability * With tools like Twitter, Facebook, etc., its easy to let your network (and the world) know that youre looking for a job. Even if only one or two well-connected people know that youre looking for work, word can get around to dozens or even hundreds of other people! 3. Show off * Its not enough to say youre available. You have to let everyone know why youd make an excellent helping hand this summer! Leverage the opportunity the web gives you to get outside of your one-dimensional resumé and show off what really makes you a super star! 4. Approach organizations that dont appear to be hiring * Pitch your energy, expertise and willingness to learn to organizations—especially small and medium-sized organizations—even if they dont appear to be hiring. 5. Search outside the lines * Use the summer as an opportunity to try something
