We need more events like URx! A fantastic (and rare) opportunity to connect with, and learn from, other people working in the same space who care about building strong, inclusive rercruiting programs. The conference tone was very collaborative and engaging. A great space for us to showcase some of the things that have worked well at Lyft. We look forward to attending again this year!

The URx Conference was a great experience to take time away from the office to refresh and get inspired. The speakers and sessions were engaging and allowed me to reflect not only on areas where I’d like to improve but also to recognize where we are doing well. I enjoyed my experience and am thankful I had the opportunity to connect with other professionals in the Early Career Talent Aquisition space.

URx was such a great experience. Being surrounded by other recruiters in the industry that shared the same passion and interests! I was able to gather insights on how other companies approach early in career talent and to hear from the university side on how companies can better attract talent. I would highly recommend this conference to anybody whether their program is just getting started or has been established for years.

For those of us on the East Coast, we rarely get a chance to be in the same room with so many of our West Coast colleagues especially within both industry and higher education. URx provides a unique forum for all of us to come together to discuss the best ways to accomplish our common goal: connecting the right students with the right opportunity.

If you're looking for an opportunity to learn and idea share with passionate recruiters you won't be disappointed in URx. You'll hear and learn from individuals at top companies across different industries, and walk away energized to evolve on your own programs. Everyone I met was excited to exchange ideas, stories, and advice - no matter what stage your early career programs are at you will benefit from the event.
