Hi, I’m Tejal Malde, and I am running for External Vice for MathSoc. As well as being a dedicated and organised person who could be a valuable member of the committee I believe I have good ideas as to how to better connect our sponsors with what we want, by making sure they cover a wide range of fields and put on careers events that appeal to us. I have realised the importance of careers events as a chance to find out more about companies and fields that we may not have explored before, as well as network and learn about the undergraduate and graduate opportunities available at these companies.
I want to make sure next year that careers events are hosted by sponsors in a vast range of fields to show us the number of options available to us as maths students. I also found this year that a good way of making careers events more appealing is to make them more interactive, such as the TPP pub quizzes or Optiver trading workshop, as opposed to the traditional talk, and so I aim to make careers events be more in this style. Finally, I will make sure we continue to keep a good connection with our sponsors so that as a society we can benefit from the opportunities they present to us career and event wise.
