When are meetings and what can I expect?
Cal Poly's ISA is a professional club for anyone with an interest in the information systems field. We meet in Building 03 room 204 on Tuesday's at 11:00am - 12:00pm. At our weekly meetings company representatives present the different IS-related opportunities in their organizations and help guide information systems students in making professional decisions. Often these representatives recruit for internship and full-time employment. In addition to our weekly meetings, we put on several events throughout the year including the Spring Banquet.
Do I have to be an IS major to join?
No, ISA is open to all majors as we encourage cross collaboration and interdisciplinary networking.
What kinds of companies are showcased by ISA?
The companies that visit ISA are seeking motivated, intelligent, and energetic fast learners. Industry leaders like IT Consulting firms and 10,000+ employee firms that specialize in IS and IT. We also have start up consulting firms with 200 employees or less. In addition, we have companies whose primary lines of business are not IT, but nonetheless rely on a solid IT infrastructure.
