My name is Jan Offermanns, and for the Academic year 2022-23, I am the Vice-President and Career Activities Commissioner of the SCOPE board. I am 21 years old, in between my 2nd and 3rd year of International Business, and originally from Cologne, Germany. After my time as the Treasurer of SCOPE in the previous year, I decided to join this board full-time, and I am now happy to be leading all career committees. The work of these ambitious committees is centered around connecting students with companies, aimed at providing them with a good network and possibilities to start an internship, trainee program, graduate job, or any other following career step. We are doing so by hosting the Maastricht Business Days in Spring and Autumn every year, as well as numerous trips within and outside of Europe. I am beyond proud to support the committees that are sending participants on different career trips to London, Berlin, Barcelona, Frankfurt, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Dublin, Dusseldorf, Budapest, and other destinations.
Next to that, I also took on the role as the current Vice-President of SCOPE, meaning that I assist our president in certain association and board matters. As the job of president entails a lot of legal responsibilities, it is my task to give my input during decision-making and to represent the president when she cannot attend.
All in all, I am looking forward to an exciting year and to many successful collaborations with my fellow board members, active members, the Alumni office, the university, our partners, all companies, and of course, all participants that will join the SCOPE events in this year!
