In last week’s #SocialWednesday, we kicked off our five-week long SGA Elections 2017-18 special series called From SGA to You and shared with our readers a special message from the team’s VP of Marketing and Communications, Prachi Avsare. This week, we are delivering the words of SGA’s President, Jatin Jaiswal!
If you’re interested in submitting your SGA candidate application, you can fill out and submit the application form by clicking here. Deadline to submit candidate applications is August 9th and voting will start on August 18th.
Now let’s move onto what Jatin had to deliver to our readers:
“Being a member of SGA provides you with a great platform where you can apply all the skills that you have learned in the classroom. SGA helps you to connect with the current students, as well as the alumnus working in the corporate all around the world, and in the legal system of United States. This is a great opportunity as being a student representative you represent the whole student body which helps you develop your personality and enhance your leadership techniques. You get a chance to meet with people who are working in the real world which gives you a chance to build valuable connections with them.
With the help of this platform SGA provides, students can develop or enhance skills such as project management and communication methods. Moreover, it’s a great platform for people who have stage fright as this opportunity definitely will help them learn and develop the skills of networking which is really necessary in today’s world. And it doesn’t stop there. As most of you are aware, understanding team dynamics is great skill that is required to work in any kind of company whether it’s a start-up or million-dollar corporation. With joining SGA, our students can utilize these opportunities and practice how to work as a team, and develop these sets of skills to bring with them over to their next professional endeavor.”
