Interview: Aljereau Marten

Can you tell something about yourself?
I am a master student at the EUR, in the past year, I did marketing and this upcoming year I am doing Financial Economics.

What was your position in the International Consultancy Project Committee and what did this entail?
I was an External Relations Coordinator in the International Consultancy Project Committee and I handled the scheduling of call shifts and acquiring companies. But, as a committee, you are not limited to your own tasks alone, so I also assisted when help was required from another committee members.

Why did you decide that you wanted to join the International Consultancy Project Committee?
I was looking into joining a committee so I went on the MAEUR site and looked at the options, the International Consultancy Project Committee attracted me the most.

What did you learn from this experience?
I learned to have patience with acquiring companies and the other committee members. 

What did you enjoy most?
I enjoyed the trip the most. Next to that getting to know new people was very useful.

What tips do you have for someone considering applying for the IRP Committee?
Think it through very well and try to envision how your year will look like if you join. This is the longest project which also makes it intense. If you make sure you balance your involvement in the International Consultancy Project Committee and your study, all will be fine.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
Once you're in, enjoy yourself, meet new people and reap the benefits of all the events!
