Don't just take our word for it:

“Connections was one of the best conferences I have ever attended – the attention to every detail made me feel included and valued.”

—Katherine Prum, Sr. Associate Director Employer Relations, Brandies University International Business School

“The GradLeaders Connections Conference is a great event that always rings true to its name! I was pleased with the productive discussions I was able to be part of—both formally and informally—and felt the agenda allowed more time for informal networking than some other events I've attended, which for me added a lot of value.”

—Amy Wilson, Director, Leadership Development Programs, Medtronic

“The team at GradLeaders is the best, bar none! And their annual Connections conference is a great event for networking with other schools and employers in their network."

—Robin Darmon, Director, MBA Career Connections, UC San Diego, Rady School of Management

 "The networking opportunities with schools and partners were super helpful, especially paired with best practice use case discussions. Everyone was incredibly engaged throughout the entire event, including the GradLeaders team who went above and beyond. It’s one of the best conferences I’ve been to.”

-Dakotah Taylor, Senior Recruiter, First National Bank

“Connections was by far the best conference I’ve ever attended. It was a great opportunity to collaborate with peers and corporate recruiters alike, allowing me to gain a better perspective on the industry as a whole. While our partnership with GradLeaders was already underway, Connections convinced me to not delay another year before moving to the full GradLeaders Career Center platform. Their value has been demonstrated through their technology, their networking opportunities, and their customer service, and we’re excited to take full advantage of our partnership.”

—Kimbrelyn Austin, Executive Director, Texas A&M University, Mays Business Schools
