Career officer

As the Career Officer, you are mainly responsible for the career portfolio of FAECTOR. The function of the Career Officer is extremely diverse. You are responsible (together with the Commercial Officer) for acquiring companies and making sponsorship deals for FAECTOR, supervising the Econometric Career Days Committee and chairing the Financial Markets Tour committee. Furthermore, you organise several other career events yourself: The Inhouse Days, Find Your Match and informal activities.

After you are appointed, you and the Commercial Officer will immediately start planning meetings during the summer, where 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. Moreover, you will discuss with them potential partnerships and other cooperations with FAECTOR. This period is extremely interesting and fun, during which you learn a lot about acquiring companies and the companies themselves.

The Econometric Career Days (ECD) committee is responsible for organising the biggest multi-day recruitment event for econometricians worldwide. The ECD connects highly motivated Econometrics & Operations Research students from Erasmus University Rotterdam with prestigious companies. You will be supervising this committee and making sure everything runs smoothly. Furthermore, you will be thinking about long-term goals for the ECD and ways to improve the event further.

The fact that you are the chairman of the Financial Markets Tour (FMT) Committee makes the function of the Career Officer especially diverse. The FMT is a tour for quantitative students interested in investment banking. Together with the committee, consisting of students also from outside of FAECTOR, you will organise the FMT 2024. During your board year, you will go to London twice; once to evaluate the previous edition and acquire companies, and in September for the FMT you organise yourself!

Next to these committees, you are also responsible for organising some of FAECTOR’s other career events. Firstly, The Inhouse Days, which is a two-day event during which students visit four companies of one sector. You will be in charge of communication with the companies and students. Secondly, Find Your Match, which is a speed date event for master’s students looking for a thesis internship. You will organise everything for this event, from choosing a location to making the programs for the students. Lastly, you arrange all the informal events with the companies that want to organise an informal event with us.
