Robert Half & IMA Team for Member Benefits
As part of a long-term strategy to help its members with career development, the Institute of Management Accountants has just announced that it has entered into an agreement with HR giant Robert Half to offer IMA members a multitude of career placement benefits.
Half will be known as the IMA's 'National Career Partner' for the organization's 70,000 members and 300 chapters.
At the present time, Half is scheduled to develop electronic access to job searches and resume postings, an IMA-member only career assessment tool, and there will be other features as well as a result of this agreement.
In a published release, IMA President Frank Minter said, 'Having RHI as our 'National Career Partner' strengthens our existing certification and membership programs, and will allow IMA members special access to RHI's outstanding career development resources.'
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
