Applications for the position of Chairman of the Eerstejaars commissie 2018-2019 or Freshmen Committee 2018-2019 will be open from the 23rd of May until the 30th of May!

Are you interested in working close with upcoming first year students and do you want to gain more experience in leadership and planning? Then apply now for the position of Chairman in the Eerstejaarscommissie or Freshmen Committee!

As the chairman of the Eerstejaarscommissie (EC) or Freshmen Committee (FC), you will organise various social events together with a group of 6-7 new first year students, who are the regular members of the EC/FC. Your job consists of leading the committee, leading the meetings and making sure that all committee members do their work well and have a good time while doing their tasks! You’ll be responsible for events such as the FAECTOR Football Tournament, the Karaoke Night, Beer Pong Tournament and at the end of the year one of the introduction camps for first year students: PINKWIN/PENGUIN! Besides that, you are responsible for the decisions made by the committee.

As the chairman of the Freshmen Committee, you are also responsible for FAECTOR’s iBuddy Programme. This programme connects current students in Econometrics, Econometrie or BSc2, so called iBuddies, with prospective international students who will start with a Bachelor in Econometrics or BSc2 in September. You will be the contact person for these iBuddies and you will give them a training to explain what they are expected to do and what situations they could encounter. Next to that, you will assign the prospective students to an iBuddy and if you want, you can be an iBuddy yourself as well.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for students who are currently in their first year who want to improve their planning and leadership skills and who are social, proactive and enthusiastic. If you are studying Econometrie, you can only apply for the position of chairman of the EC and if you are studying Econometrics or BSc2, you can only apply for the position of chairman of the FC.
