What Connexters Say About Us

My Connext mentor has been a huge supporter in a time where I felt unsure of myself and my future. Sometimes, I’m my worst enemy. My mentor listened to me, encouraged me to look inward and challenged me to eliminate my inner critic. Because of this connextion, I’m ready to take on the world.

-Tieara, Workday

Connext does an outstanding job of not only making connections between consultants and clients, but also between clients and students. My team and I have been involved with two different student communications projects through Connext. These students have done an amazing job and opened our eyes to some new ideas. I’m keeping my eyes on some future communications superstars.

-Mark, Varian Medical Systems

 The real world can be intimidating, which is why having Connext on my side has eased pressures and guided me in the right direction.

-Chalen, PR Student

 Think mentoring is old-school? In today’s multi-generational workforce, mentoring is an equal opportunity benefit that never goes out of style.
