Collaborate with the UofSC Student Chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants to meet and network with our students. Our chapter is open to hosting a wide variety of guests, not just accountants. Email our president Lexi Neely (email@example.com) or any other team member for more information.
Zoom meetings can be hosted by interested employers or professionals who want to provide our students with information about their careers. Zoom meetings are very flexible and can be held at whichever time is most convenient for our guests. It should be noted that in person networking opportunities are always preferred to online meetings since less students typically respond to online meetings and interaction tends to be lower.
Send a Speaker
Come over and tell us what you do all day! Many of our members have "flexible" goals and could be interested in your field of work or your company! Speakers should be ready to describe the responsibilities of their job, the work-life balance of their career path, and the culture of their company. After the presentation, prepare to answer questions and network with students who liked that you had to say.
Come to a Lunch
Student Chapter hosted lunches are a good and casual way to get to know our members. Lunches are typically hosted between 11 am and 3 pm. Since students have different schedules, more students will have scheduling conflicts than events hosted after 7 pm.
Plan an Interactive Event
Sending a speaker can be a great way to get a first contact with an organization, but the interaction between students and guests is often limited. Interactive events allow guests to see how students work with one another and respond to problems. Making decisions is an integral part of business and that's what our members are here to learn. Sending or coming in with a problem for our members to solve is a great way to see what our members are made of. Some great options are problems that you worked on in the past or are dealing with right now. Our members can practice their communication skills describing their solution, and guests get a direct look at how students make decisions.
