Hey everyone! We hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!
Yesterday UH AITP had the pleasure of hosting Amerishore to our 4th General Meeting of the spring semester. Amerishore is a subsidiary of the business technology solutions company Neudesic, and its goal is to train young professionals and expose them to the world of technology consulting through its hands-on internships. If you are a sophomore or a junior (or perhaps a senior that will still be going to school after graduation), Amerishore might be the perfect opportunity for you! If you are interested, please email us your resume and we will forward it on to them.
Earlier today during lunch, the AITP Houston Chapter held their first CIO Collaboration Series Event of the year at Maggiano’s. If you have never been to one of these events, they are a great way to network with professionals in the field. They also give you the chance to meet with the CIOs of various companies (which is a rare treat since they are often extremely busy).
Speaking of AITP Houston, they are giving away multiple scholarships, and the deadline is fast approaching! Criteria to qualify for the scholarship include:
