The Ninth Annual GRADUCon was held on
Friday, April 6, 2018 at International House. 

GRADUCon is the University of Chicago's annual career conference just for graduate students and postdocs. It is a fantastic opportunity to explore careers in academia, industry, nonprofits, and government. Over 400 graduate students and postdocs participated in the day-long program that included panel discussions and the chance to talk one-on-one with over 80 employers and alumni about diverse career trajectories. Thank you to all of our alumni and friends who made the day a great success!
