Quarter Life Conference on career and social justice is a totally FREE, all online conference for twenty and thirty somethings on October 3, 2013.

Instead of paying a ton of money to take time off work, hop on a plane, and spend a few days at a conference–we wanted to provide a resource that is both affordable (see: FREE) and applicable that you can watch from the comfort of your iPhone, iPad, tablet, laptop or computer. Please enter your e-mail below to attend the next Quarter Life Conference for FREE!
