Placement season is the toughest part about college. If it wasn’t for the GRADE report, I don’t think I would’ve understood what employers are really looking for. Today, I am an industry mentor for the juniors in my college.
We have great relationships with recruiters and achieve 100% placements, which is why I was unsure about recommending GRADE to my students. It’s only when I took it myself that I realised how much my students can benefit from it.
