“I’ll tell you exactly what I look for when I interview a new college grad,” Alice Adams volunteered. Alice, a system development manager at a local bank, was talking with several professional acquaintances at a monthly dinner meeting of the Association for Information Technology Professionals (AITP). AITP provides opportunities for information systems professionals to get together occasionally and share experiences. Usually a few dozen professionals from information systems departments at a variety of companies attend the monthly meetings.
