The Career, Research, and Innovation Development Conference — or CRIDC — is designed to equip on-campus and online graduate students with tools and knowledge to thrive in an ever-changing job market.
The 2019 CRIDC attracted 33 employers and 440 attendees to its campuswide, graduate student-focused career fair. Plus, 216 students presented their research at the online and on-campus poster competitions, and more than $49,000 in travel grants were awarded to competition winners.
The 2020 event will be held Jan. 27-28 at the Global Learning Center. It is open to master's and Ph.D. students (both on-campus and online) and all Tech postdoctoral scholars.
CRIDC will feature panels and talks organized by the following graduate student associations: TechPro, PhD2consulting, GT Grad Pride, Ivan Allen College Graduate Student Advisory Board, and the Fulbright Student Association.
