2017 AAGE Graduate Recruitment & Development Conference

Posted by Daniel Headford

If graduate programs are foreign to you and you’re feeling flustered by your way forward, you might be keen to check out the AAGE Conference later this month. The Conference provides insights into the latest graduate industry trends and best practice, as well as access to your industry peers to help you soundboard ideas!

This year’s theme is about the ‘bigger picture’ – so there’ll be a lot of content about graduate program ROI and its role in strategic workforce planning.

If you’ve snagged a ticket, we’ve made a list of our top picks of presentations you need to see to help you design an effective graduate program strategy.

As usual, we’ll have a stand at the expo so we encourage you to come along and say hi in the breaks.

We’re also proud to be sponsoring the Gala Dinner and AGRIA Awards for the first time and once again the official After Party – so, bring your dancing shoes. It’s going to be a fun night!
