Why a board year?

A board year is a truly great opportunity to build your network, grow as an individual, develop leadership skills, expand your network and build friendships for life!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can apply for a board position?

Being an ETC member is not a requirement. All EUR students excited about tech are welcome to apply!

Do I need to know how to code or have any other tech-related capabilities to be accepted?

We do not ask for any particular skill-sets, and being a data engineer is absolutely not a requirement. Take what you have and apply it to your role within ETC! Any skills are good skills when you can explain how they can contribute to your role in ETC and building our community.

On that note: all of this year’s board members are business and economics students with a passion for tech and eagerness to learn. That’s it.

What does the recruitment entail?

Almost the standard rounds you’re used to. First fill out the Typeform and upload your CV – no motivation letters required.The selected candidates move on to the second round where we conduct video interviews. For the final round, we will conduct another round of video interviews with the final candidates in order to pick a team with the most fitting skills/personality-mix. All the communication will be done by email and phone.

How much time in my week will a board position take?

It really depends on the amount and size of the events you will be willing to organize with the team. On average you should expect to spend around 25h/week doing your part. Do not worry about balancing your studies with ETC – even though ~25h seems daunting, you’ll get used to managing it next to your studies. We do not recommend that you take on additional (board) positions next to ETC. As mentioned before; if you are looking to truly develop yourself, learn more about tech, and expand your network big time… this is the place to be! No side-hustles needed.
