I hope you all are having a great summer! We know it's been a little quiet around here lately since it's summer, but that will change very soon - especially since school is starting back up in a few weeks!
Our executives were elected in March and have since been working hard all summer planning a great year for you all! Now, you're probably wondering, "Man, I wish I could be a part of ISSA somehow, they're just soooo cool. I also really want to get involved more around campus... What can I do?"
Well, now here is your chance to join our awesome team!
While our executives are planning events, who's going to hear about them? Through the grapevine? That'd be kind of difficult with over 50,000 people attending UBC... Through flyers? While that would help, ISSA is a very environmentally-friendly student organization and killing some trees is not always in our agenda.
Maybe if we had an awesome communications/media crew, they could help spread the word about ISSA faster than a BC wildfire (by the way, hope all of you are having a safe summer).
We will be looking for 6 to 8 friendly, media-savvy students to make up our ISSA Media team! We are hoping to recruit a couple Videographers/Photographers to attend and capture moments at our events, three to four Writers to help out with our biweekly newsletter columns and blog (which you are reading right now!), and last but definitely not least, two graphic designers to assist in creating aesthetically-appealing graphics for our online platforms and event promo. It's a great opportunity to practice your creativity and be one of the first people to know and share the great events we're planning. You'll also have invites to some of our ISSA meetings and events throughout the year in addition to being a part of an awesome student association!
Interested? Please CLICK HERE to fill out a form, enter in all the required fields as listed. Remember to answer as best as you can and be fun with it! More details about the positions HERE.
The deadline is 11:59PM, Friday, Sept. 6th, 2014!
Selected candidates will be scheduled in for an interview with a few ISSA executives in early September (the 2nd week of classes, the 8th to the 12th).
*Writers, don't worry, you won't be writing massive essays. But we would like to see some pieces of your writing (blog, twitter, website, maybe an old assignment, etc.).
*Photographers/videographers must have their own equipment, and please provide us with some of your sample work (photography/videos through YouTube, etc.), and a rough idea of your availability throughout first and second term (more details in the link!).
*Graphic designers should be familiar with photo-editing programs (Photoshop, InDesign, etc.), please provide us with some of your sample work (graphics, logos, etc.)
Thanks and good luck! We hope to meet the media team candidates soon!
The Communications Coordinator
(on behalf of the ISSA exec team)

About Me: My major is Integrated Sciences; I'm integrating physiology and psychology, and completing a minor in kinesiology. The movie 'The Imitation Game' blew my mind, and every piece done by the artist Alex Cherry is spectacular. Also, if you look up the definition of a bookworm, you'll find me.
Integrating Physiology and Neuroscience!
I like hanging out at Tower Beach but you can usually find me studying at Ponderosa even though I don't live there.
