UMSU is calling out for volunteers to help out for Open Day!
I’ve volunteered last year and had a ball! We even received a free Melbourne Uni top, a lunch voucher, and a little certificate of appreciation. (I don’t know what goodies we’ll get this time round since transition and orientation no longer runs it. Sad face! But I’m sure it will be just as awesome)
Basically you’ll be handing out showbags and balloons, giving directions, and smiling till your face hurts. Overall, you’re there to represent the university and positively promote MU to everyone!
I highly recommend that you get involved! It’s a fun event and it’s always great to give back to the community!
Applications close this wednesday (29 May 2013) and you can sign up here:
What’s the interview like?
I’ve had some people ask me what the interviews for the Open day guides are like. And it will most probably be different this year since they’ve change the people who are running it…but this is what my interview process was like last year!
It was a really chilled group interview. They broke us up into groups, and then we had introduce ourselves to everyone in the group.
Then we chose a topic about anything uni-related (something that promotes the uni), and present it to the group for 1 minute. And there was a map exercise, where they were testing us on where the building were using the map.
Anyways, GO AND APPLY!
I know I’ll definitely re-apply, and try to brainwash all the kids to study science during Open Day :P
