Volunteer Opportunity: General Officer Positions

The Economics Students Association will be looking to hire a number of volunteers to help us throughout the upcoming school year. There are several departments within our club looking to hire. Becoming a general officer is an excellent way to get involved while having the opportunity to meet and work alongside people who share similar interests! Each general officer will be working under the guidance of the executive member of their respective departments. As such, general officers end up developing a solid understanding of club operations and logistics which opens up room for growth in terms of advancements within our executive body.

Here is a link to our General Officer Positions Catalogue 2012/2013. Browse through the catalogue to see which positions you are most interested in and which most appropriately tailors to your skill set.

To apply, send us your resume/CV and a small description about yourself and why you are fit for the position to Please also remember to mention the position(s) that you are applying for.

The deadline for applications is midnight on October 8th.

Good luck to those who apply!
