Join us for the 2022 GRADventure Professional Skills Conference

This annual conference is designed to help better prepare graduate students and postdocs for professional roles both within and outside of academia. UWaterloo staff and external speakers will host workshops and presentations on relevant topics from their areas of expertise. They will emphasize skills to help you succeed during your time at Waterloo, and beyond, in your future career. 

This year's conference will take place over three days, from April 19 to April 21 2022. It will consist of lightning talks (short presentations meant to quickly introduce you to larger topics) as well as workshops, and will conclude with an afternoon of trivia where you can compete with your peers for the chance to win cash prizes. For more detailed information, you can visit the conference web page, or check out the event pages for the individual sessions. 

Register for the conference through our webform, and sign up for any sessions that you are interested in attending. This could be all of them or just a few that you find the most intriguing. Either way we look forward to seeing you!
