Officers from the Information Management Association (IMA), Luke LaBranche, Marissa Mazurok and Marc Senatore, presented the club to prospective companies at the Reverse Career Fair on October 5th. The Reverse Career Fair took place directly following the university-wide Career Fair.
The Reverse Career Fair allowed the IMA representatives to network with companies in hopes of finding potential partners for the club’s weekly meetings. Partnerships could come in the form of recruitment or professional development opportunities for the student club. IMA Treasurer, Marc Senatore said connecting with companies could potentially lead to the club receiving scholarships or corporate sponsorship.
Marc said the Reverse Career Fair was successful in getting IMA’s name out there to great companies. The IMA representatives were excited to connect with these companies, most notably, MassMutual, a life insurance company, and Cigna, a health insurance company. Senatore said these two companies have well known IT internships and post-graduate programs.
“The relationships we hope to form with them in the future are the very backbone of what IMA is about, tying together IT and Business,” Senatore said.
