The Career, Research, and Innovation Development Conference (CRIDC) is Georgia Tech’s annual professional development event for graduate students.

CRIDC, which is held every year at the beginning of the spring semester, is designed to equip graduate students of all degree types with the tools and knowledge necessary to thrive in the constantly evolving job market.

CRIDC helps prepare the next generation of technology leaders to enter the career landscape, by inspiring discussion and collaboration among students and industry experts, and connecting graduate students with professionals in research, industry, consulting, government, nonprofits, and entrepreneurship.
