The Management Information Systems Student Organization has a history of producing top-notch college graduates with great work-ethics. Employers around the country are aware of the level of quality that comes from our members. Many employers visit our website and request Resume CD’s because it is a great opportunity for them to seek candidates. At the beginning of every semester, our Vice President requests resumes from our great members and compiles them onto a CD that is distributed to employers at Career Fair as well as general meetings. One of the greatest benefits of this Resume CD is not only another way to get your name to employers, but also to get some feedback on your resume from our Vice President regarding your resume.
