We held our annual Microsoft Game Day event today on Campus and it was a great success! We hold the event every year to expose students to all of the great careers that are related to IT. In fact, 87% of all new jobs will be IT related. This doesn’t mean that they are IT jobs, but rather that they require the use of IT.
Because of this, we open the event up to everyone on campus, regardless of major. We lure them in with the games, and then we get to tell them about how taking some MIS courses in addition to their major courses could open up many more job opportunities to them than it they had not taken any technology courses.
It also served as the finale Imagine Cup mixers. The winners of the local Imagine Cup competition that we were holding on campus were announced and we were even able to gain more interest in the competition.
