Business Relations - Hidde Barkmeijer
My name is Hidde Barkmeijer and last year I finished my bachelor in Chemical Engineering. This year I will be the Business Relations and Vice-Chairman of G.T.D. Bernoulli.
As the Business Relations, you will be the face of the association towards the companies and other external organizations. Together with these companies, you will organize excursions, inhouse-days, (lunch-/borrel)lectures and workshops. These activities will give great insights for internships and for the future careers of you and our members. You will also be promoting our partners to the members and their vacancies for internships and starter jobs.The Business Relations is also responsible for the sponsorships of Bernoulli, which is an important task, as this will keep the association running with all the money that can be spent by the treasurer.
The Business Relations will also represent Bernoulli in the Supervisory board of the Beta Business Days (BBD). In this board, all the associations of the FSE and TeMa are discussing, advising and approving decisions made by the BBD board. This means that you are also helping the BBD board during the year with their promotion for the BBD and you will keep close contacts with other representatives of other associations.
Apart from the bigger specific tasks of the Business Relations, there are still some smaller tasks for you. For example, the Business Relations posts all career activities on LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram, so everyone is up-to-date.
Lastly, the most interesting part of being the Business Relations is the contact you will be having with big chemical companies and the great people within the companies. The activities will be organized in collaboration with the company and they will show gratitude for it. From these experiences you will get to know a lot about how the companies work, besides what is told in the lectures. Furthermore, it is a great way to improve your networking qualities and make interesting connections.
