What can CETAC do for you as a student?

Member

Get the opportunity to meet and establish contacts with interesting companies and other students at Chalmers; contacts that are favorable for the rest of your life. At the beginning of each academic year, we arrange academic and innovative events for all of our members, such as:

  • Resume & CV Workshops
  • Mock Interview Sessions and Preparation
  • Company Trips to Stockholm

Previous year’s CETAC members visited companies such as Netlight, Spotify, etc. During the fall, the entire CETAC organization celebrates North American Thanksgiving together by arranging and cooking up a traditional Thankgiving menu for all the members to enjoy.

In order to make all of this possible, the organisation needs to spread the word about the organization on campus, recruit new members, sell products to companies, and most importantly, arrange new relationships and maintain existing ones with companies in North America. The association would not exist without our hard-working members and their passionate work ethics.

Teams

As a member of the sales team you have the opportunity to help with the funding of the scholarship that is granted to all interns of CETAC. Any profit is directly invested in the grant. The scholarship is meant to cover expenses that are associated with the process of moving to the US. The main task in the sales group is to contact Swedish companies and offer our services.

The PR group is in charge of increasing the exposure of CETAC to students on Chalmers. The assignments of the PR group include preparation for lunch lectures, administration of social media accounts including Facebook, Instagram, and any other event that CETAC organizes.

Assist the Internship Coordinators in their work of finding suitable and reptuble companies in North America that are interested in hiring highly motivated students from Chalmers. Here you have the possibility to find your own dream job and have a direct contact with recruiters in North America.

Board Member

As a board member you actively work with the organizations continuity while you support and help the members. The new board gets elected by the previous year’s board during the winter/spring and it is then up to the new board to recruit members for the upcoming academic year.

The chairman’s responsibility is to oversee and coordinate both the administrative and operational parts of CETAC. Among other, the tasks of the chairman can be to plan and hold meetings, represent the organization outwards, and take care of the visa process for our members.

As the treasurer, your role is simple. Your assignments consist of financial management and overview, keeping track of cash flow in-and-out from the association, and making sure our economy is in a good place. Whenever a member of the group makes a sale, you ensure that the customer receives the correct invoice and that payment is delivered to us in time.

Designing and implementing a strategic sales plan that expands CETAC’s customer base and ensure its strong presence. Managing recruiting, objectives setting, coaching and performance monitoring of sales representatives, as well as reaching out to Swedish companies.
