  2. 2. AIESEC IIT Kharagpur Newsletter Globe Trekker- Spring Fest ‘09 24th January, ‘09 From “Star-Nites” of fabulous singers like KK to the awe-inspiring combination of Indian Classical music and jazz performed during Spring Fest, Spring fest 09 marked an important step in AIESEC IIT Kharagpur’s stepping forward in IIT Kharagpur. We, the AIESECers of IIT Kharagpur held an event called “Globe Trekker” during Spring Fest. Vice President of Incoming Exchange, Swapnil Sharma along with the help of the organizing committee took charge of this event. The quizmaster for this event was an alumnus of IIT Kharagpur, currently pursuing a degree from IIM Kolkata. Since there were many interested people to participate in the quiz, ten people from the crowd were short listed after the preliminary round .This preliminary round was a general knowledge round. This was done in order to shortlist five teams for the finals. Each team consisted of at least one intern and two shortlisted people. This was done to familiarize the foreign interns to IIT. The interns in question here have come for AIESEC internship in India from various parts of the world. Walid Souissi from Tunisia interning at Price WaterhouseCoopers , James Jae Moon Jung from New Zealand interning at PriceWaterhouseCoopers , Elisa from Brazil working in VSSU and two fellow Taiwanese. Political, historical and geographical questions were asked about various parts of the world. The group which emerged as winners was a heterogroup comprising of our fellow Kgpian Neeraj Goswami, a student from NIT Rourkela, Sushrut Chakrobarti accompanied by a Taiwanese AIESEC intern,Daniel Hobola.

  3. 3. AIESEC IIT Kharagpur Newsletter Info –Talk 12th August, ‘09 The success as well as the failures of the previous term, brought to us, more sense of responsibility to live up to the expectations of the KGPians, but most importantly, to compensate for our past mistakes. An efficient recruitment process hence became our priority. The August Recruitment Drive started with the event Info Talk, held on 12th August' 09, with a view to give an introductory talk on AIESEC and its functioning in Kharagpur. Hosted by Aproop and Ninoto, Vice President Traineeship Nominee and Vice President Outgoing Exchange, and sponsored by Roads, this event turned out to be a huge success with a turn up of 140 students!! Comprising mainly of 1st and 2nd yr students,the 2 hour event included briefing the audience with AIESEC, as a global organisation, its role, values and the organisational structure of AIESEC IIT Kharagpur. The target was to explain the recruitment process and the job roles of the members and hence create an urge in the students to join AIESEC IIT Kharagpur. The audience got an opportunity to interact with 2 of our EPs. This was followed by description of the internships opportunities available this year and an open to all query round. Selling of the membership application forms marked the end. The impact that the event had on the students is very well reflected from the fact that 96 forms got sold out of 100, while we still had interested students waiting in queue!!

  4. 4. AIESEC IIT Kharagpur Newsletter OGX Seminar 17th August, ‘09 Every year AIESEC provides around 5500 students the unforgettable experience to work and live in a foreign country. This will mean that every one and a half hour there would be an excited youth boarding a plane to go for his/her AIESEC internship in over 107 countries that AIESEC has affiliations with. These students would be going for international internships in various management, technical, educational and developmental fields to work with people from various countries. This year AIESEC IIT Kharagpur sent six students for the AIESEC experience. Ninoto Zhimomi, our VP- OCX went to Debrecen, Hungary to work in four schools in two different cities. Nitin Babel, one of our Exchange Participant went to Ukraine to work in World Without Borders where he discussed on Global topics and talked about Indian culture to various interns from Turkey, China and many other countries. Ankur Singhal went to work in financial firm in Switzerland where he worked in a lot of number crunching in a savvy office. Saahil Parekh and Shaily Jaisinghani went to Ivory Coast and Shanghai respectively to work in AIDS awareness and teach HIV positive people. Vishu gupta went to Taiwan where he taught English to Taiwanese students. To send more such interested students during the vacations so that they do something worthwhile during the holidays, an OGX seminar was held by Ninoto Zhimomi to make the interested students more aware about the procedure and the various internships that AIESEC provides. An active participation from the students ended the seminar with a roaring success. Copyright @ AIESEC IIT Kharagpur Contact us @ www.aieseciitkgp.co.cc
  5. 5. AIESEC IIT Kharagpur Newsletter Local Training Seminar 29th August, 2009, Fore Math: AIESEC IITKgp organized the Local Training Seminar for introduction of the new recruits into the society and to give them the idea about the functioning, aspirations and future plans of the society. The seminar was organized by Shubhanshu Mishra as its Organizing Committee President and had two of the AIESEC Alumni Aditya Raut and Naru as its chairpersons. The seminar was attended by the Executive Body comprised of Local Committee President Sugam Agarwal and the Vice-Presidents of various departments, and all the members of AISEC. The event commenced at around 2 o'clock with a brief introduction between the older and the newer recruits followed by a presentation about AIESEC Worldwide and then moving on to that how AIESEC-IITKgp fitted into the hierarchy. During whole of seminar the recruits were briefed about the structure of the AIESEC and the working of various departments and how they functioned and collaborated with each other and the Vice-Presidents of various departments gave introductions about their respective departments. The event was very enjoyable as besides the serious matters discussed the event was marked with a lot of activities like the description of oneself by everyone by an adjective beginning with the initial of his or her name, the Ice-breaker in which one was asked to tell a thing about the person to his left that he disliked and one thing about the person to his right that he liked, the new recruits were asked to enact AIESEC logo and the SWOT analysis of AIESEC IITKgp.

  6. 6. AIESEC IIT Kharagpur Newsletter After Math: After the seminar, all the members were taken for dinner to Sibani restaurant located at about a 20 minutes drive from the campus. Four vehicles were used for transport. At Sibani we were joined by the AIESEC alumni and the evening started with everyone introducing oneself by telling his name followed by a truth and a lie about himself. It turned to be very pleasurable as people turned up with very candid truths and sporty lies about themselves. This was followed by ‘Skolling’ a game which is very close to soft drink drinking race between the older members against the new recruits and the executive body against the alumni. The snacks were served and everyone now sat down around the table for the most awaited event of the evening ‘Screw the seniors’. In this everyone especially the new recruits got an opportunity to interact with their seniors and ask them any questions whether relevant or not. This turned out to be very interesting as well as useful as besides being entertaining this helped in the induction of the newer members in the society. Everyone answered their questions very sportingly and came out with the most enjoyable way. This gave way to dance and after that the dinner was served and people got a chance to interact among themselves and got to know each other better. The evening ended on a happy note and everyone returned looking forward to wonderful term ahead. Copyright @ AIESEC IIT Kharagpur Contact us @ www.aieseciitkgp.co.cc
