Hi, I’m Isaac, and I'm running to be your next marketing officer at ECSS. I'm a second-year Comp Sci student, and to be honest, I'm still figuring things out. But one thing I do know is that ECSS has been a huge part of my student experience, and I want to give back by contributing my “skills” to the society.
So, why do I think I'd be a good marketing officer? Well, over the past year, I've developed a bit of a habit of procrastinating coursework by creating fake album covers and ECSS event posts. It's not the most productive use of my time, but it has taught me a few things. I can now make a current-style event post in a worryingly short amount of time, and I'm always looking to improve my (fake) Photoshop skills.
I've been a regular at ECSS events since I joined, and I've even pitched in to help with a few, like the Python Workshop. This year, I want to take things a step further and make a more official contribution to the society. And what better way to do that than by putting my questionable graphic design skills to good use?
This isn’t my CV, so it suffices to say as a general committee member that I’d like to think that I’m reliable, hard-working, and I always meet my deadlines. For this role, what really sets me apart is my interest in social media and branding, which I hope to expand upon throughout the year. I'm excited to bring my knowledge to the table and help craft a creative, consistent brand image for ECSS. I hope to maintain the standard of photography, and merchandise that the society has produced this year, and even improve in some areas where it’s possible.
Thanks for reading; if you want to, I’d really appreciate the vote, and I hope to see you around at the next event!
