Gals Who Graduate is a support network for women, run by women.
The highly active digital community, founded by Brontë King and growing at a rate of 34% every month, offers students and graduates a hub to share advice and experiences, meet friends and industry connections and seek relevant jobs and opportunities.
Brontë was inspired to build the community after finding her graduation summer dominated by uncertainty about her career path, pressure to make quick life-impacting decisions, and loneliness having left campus life behind. Knowing she wasn’t alone, Gals Who Graduate was born out of a need to establish a group where everyone could share these worries and concerns and offer support and advice from their own experiences. Today the brand has morphed into a support network of over 50,000 women who all have a connection to a University experience and a passion to support and guide others.
Day to day, the Gals Who Graduate team;
– oversee busy Facebook and Instagram groups where members network, share advice and seek job opportunities and facilitate more specific sub groups like the Gals Who Graduate book club
– host events (online & offline) giving members the chance to meet
– facilitate live Q&A mentoring sessions with experts offering student advice on topics like recruitment tips, mental health and financial advice
– offer careers advice to our members through initiatives like the Graduate Careers Fair
Gals Who Graduate has recently partnered with multiple like-minded brands from Superdrug to Charlotte Tilbury and Urban Decay in the form of hosting events for members to meet virtually, connect and network.
Given the current climate it has become increasingly hard for those starting and leaving University this year. In light of this, Gals Who Graduate hosted an online summer graduation ceremony for all those graduating in 2020 that missed out on their own and a Careers Fair for recent graduates currently seeking employment with a roster of fantastic companies and organisations including Condé Nast, Gymshark, the Civil Service, Tesco, EY, M&C Saatchi, Pernod Ricard, Douglas & Gordon, Cosmopolitan, Deloitte, Hodder & Stoughton and HSBC. With 1 million impressions in the last month the importance of this support network amongst young females is evident and continues to grow every day.
