iCIMS Visits MU

Colin Day, CEO of iCIMS, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions, presented a special seminar on Wednesday, April 1 in H.R. Young Auditorium. 

The program was designed to help students successfully compete for employment in today’s marketplace. 

Day is a human resources and technology expert who shared tips on how students can use social media and other emerging trends to “be found” by employers looking for talent.

This event was sponsored by the Department of Career Services, Alpha Kappa Psi and the American Marketing Association. A total of 95 students from various majors were in attendance. 

Monmouth University has formed a strong referral relationship with the talent acquisition provider through participation in the annual Fall/Spring Career Days and on-campus recruiting efforts held on campus. With 48 MU alumni currently based at iCIMS’ corporate headquarters in Matawan, NJ, the relationship has proven to be equally valuable for both establishments. 

Each year iCIMS receives an increasing amount of well qualified applications from the University’s students which has played a large role in growing the in-house headcount to nearly 450 or more employees.

“Monmouth University is a great source of local talent and iCIMS provides a fantastic local employer option to our graduates,” said Jeff Mass, Assistant Director of Career Services at the University. 

“iCIMS has hired many of Monmouth’s finest students as interns and full-time executives. We have developed a positive synergy between our organizations that has resulted in a mutually beneficial business relationship, and we hope this continues for years to come,” Mass added.
