Alumni Experiences


“Over the last year, I have met professionals from multiple industries. I never saw networking as something I was good at, but being part of GradusOne has made me feel a lot more comfortable talking to people and helped me realize my interest in the startup tech industry. As someone who is involved with several student clubs at BCIT, I also felt that I became a better leader after developing skills and connections through GradusOne.”

Colin Li, 4th year student at BCIT

"There's a certain vibe at GradusOne events that distinguishes them from other events. I would describe it as genuine, supportive, and open-minded. I am free to speak about my personal struggles without judgment and I am free to ask for advice without doubting whether it is a dumb question. This made it easy for me to have meaningful conversations with fellow attendees and speakers. I’ve always walked out of an event with new skill sets to become more employable and new insights into my desired career outlook."

Raymond Jiang, 4th year student at UBC
