Career Officer

As the Career Officer you are mainly responsible for the career portfolio of FAECTOR. The function of Career Officer is extremely diverse. Together with the Commercial Officer you are responsible for the acquisition of FAECTOR, you supervise the Econometric Career Days Committee, you chair the Financial Markets Tour committee (formerly QFT) and are in charge of organising several career events yourself.

After you are appointed, you and the Commercial Officer will immediately start with the planning of meetings during the summer in which you visit about 30% of our current partners. In these meetings you will evaluate their participation in career events over the last year and discuss possible participation for the coming year. This period is an extremely interesting and fun period, during which you learn a lot.

The fact that you are the chairman of the Financial Markets Tour Committee (formerly QFT) makes the function of the Career Officer especially diverse. Together with the committee, also consisting of students outside of FAECTOR, you will organise the FMT 2023. You will go to London twice; once to evaluate the previous edition, and in September for the FMT you organised yourself!

The ECD committee will be responsible for organising the biggest multi-day recruitment event for econometricians worldwide. You will be supervising this committee, making sure everything runs smoothly. Next to this, you will be thinking about long-term goals for the ECD and ways to improve the event further. 

Next to these committees, you are responsible for the organisation of some of FAECTOR's career events; Find Your Match, the in-house days and several informal events!
