GRADUCon is the university’s annual spring career conference for graduate students, postdocs, and recent graduate/postdoc alumni. The event features distinguished guest speakers, panel discussions featuring alumni, 1-on-1 chats, and informal networking sessions.

GRADUCon 2021 will held virtually on Thursday and Friday, April 1st and 2nd, 2021. Further details coming soon!

GRADUCon has several central objectives:

  • Provide concrete takeaways from the event, giving graduate students and postdocs specific next steps in their job search and a clearer vision of their career trajectory
  • Foster cross-disciplinary and cross-program conversations about various job markets and career skills
  • Connect graduate students and postdocs with advanced-degree alumni
