On Tuesday, September 6, 2016, IUP’s Association of Management
Information Systems (AMIS) held its first membership recruitment event
on the lawn of Eberly College. AMIS recruited 20 new members that day,
making the event an overall success.
The Association of Management Information Systems (AMIS) club
promotes safety, security, and excitement towards technology and how it can be
used to enhance people’s lives. Their mission is to provide a forum for IUP
students who are interested in the Management Information Systems (MIS) field
to learn additional skills and knowledge about MIS, better prepare themselves for MIS careers, and socialize
with other students also interested in MIS.
In addition, the AMIS Club held
their first Corporate Recruiting Event on Thursday, September 15, 2016 in
Eberly College. PNC Bank employees Cheryl Zangaro and Braydon Isett (IUP/MIS
alum), came to talk to the students about PNC, their jobs at PNC, and the internship/full
time position opportunities they had to offer. They held an informal Q&A
session afterwards, answering questions about resumes, interviews, applying,
etc. while generously providing the students with pizza and drinks. The event
had a great turnout with over 20 AMIS students in attendance.
This first Corporate
Recruiting Event was free and open to all IUP students. Anyone who wants to join
AMIS must pay the dues of $25/semester or $40/year. AMIS has already scheduled
multiple professional, service, and social events for this academic school year.
The AMIS Club is open to all IUP Students and is always seeking new members to
