“Do not hesitate to be active” 8
Being a student is about much more than sitting in the reading room. LENE MĂ˜LL Informasjonsansvarlig i SBIO email@example.com
On 8 September all committees and staff functions will have a stand in Oasis and the surrounding area in order to recruit new members. I would advise you to use the SBIO magazine to find out what you may be interested in, and then use the recruitment day to be familiar with the committees and staff functions. Chat with those who are on the stand. Do not be afraid to ask questions. They are there to recruit new, enthusiastic students, who can provide the committee or staff functions with something positive. The committees and staff functions have different social
and professional events. While some emphasize the social aspect to the greatest extent, there are some who focus solely on professional issues, but most have a balance of both academic and social activities.
We are here to learn
part-time alongside your studies. In fact, most people I know in the student union have a part-time job.
Do not hesitate
The Student Association is an open organization, where all types of people fit in. Being active is a great opportunity to meet new people - highly motivated people with similar interests as yourself - great, enterprising and resourceful people. Some of these people have just given you the Fadderullan. Later in the fall the Business Committee will give you the Career Days. After Christmas we have the cabaret show, Business Week, Bergen Railway Race and the Student Campaign. Everything is under the direction of the students themselves.
I have met students who are reluctant to seek committee work because they believe they are not smart enough, do not have relevant experience or will not fit in. It is fortunately not the case that you must have worked for Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation in order to get a position with SBIO TV. Weâ€™re here to be educated, and nobody expects everything to work smoothly, or that you have to know everything in advance. Different positions require different efforts, but it is up to you how much you will make out of your committee work. So decide to get active and There is nothing in the way use the next days to explore of having a job while working your options!
