Virtual Student Career Fair: September 9

Join us for our second annual Virtual Student Career Fair, featuring companies looking to recruit students for internships and full-time entry level positions.

We’re looking to make this year’s event even better.

Free for all IMA student and educator members (and only $25 for nonstudent members, which includes one year of IMA student membership), this half-day event will include a kick-off keynote session related to the profession and a three-hour career fair. 

Registration opens August 8, so watch your email for more information and registration details.

Headlining the conference will be keynote speaker Charlie Batch, former NFL quarterback-turned-motivational speaker and entrepreneur.

We look forward to bringing together students and their professors to share this educational, inspirational, and fun three-day experience.”
