  • Iet uz datu bāzi!
  • Iet uz datu bāzi!
  • Professional experience in a social project + work in another LC.
  • Draw a timeline on a blackboard???
  • To draw on the board approximate long each period takes?
  • Also about informational seminars (Ukraine, India) – even if they do not appear 
  • You need to tell AIESEC Network that you are available and the best way to reach every AIESECer is by submitting a short profile about you in the classified section.  Its very easy and I highly recommend uploading a nice .jpg photo of yours, edited in photoshop if necessary, and some information about who you are, what you are looking for and of course a link to your EP Form.  Rest assured, you will get lots of proposals!
  • More examples of EP advertisements
  • for advertise EP is just a matter of filling in the criteria, meaning EP id and LC, but the effect is not as good as expected- very few TN managers (ICXers) really take the time to look over these mails- and that’s because each time an EP advertises himself, we all get separate mails, so u can imagine that all these mails usually end up in Spam, which is not highly effective; of course it’s good to spend 5 min just in case and send such promotion mails...........
  • but better to focus more on individual mailing to targeted TN managers
