The Unit of Corporate Relations’ main topic is the students’ contact with the corporate world. This might for example be a matter of meeting with employers, attending a résumé writing workshop or going to a lecture about how to get the salary you deserve.

Head of Corporate Relations

What does the post do?
The post includes arranging mulibranching events that in some way give a better connection between the students and the business sector and at the same time benefit the business part. It is also important to keep in close touch with the Unions main partners and look for new collaborations when needed. It is also crucial to keep close contact with the Heads of Corporate Relations of other student unions both in Umeå and across Sweden. The post is also about being deposited in the University’s councils, groups and managers of events connected to questions about corporate and degree matters.

What is the fun part?
As Head of Corporate Relations you get to meet some of the country’s most interesting people: business representatives! To arrange events, both on your own and in collaboration with others, is probably the most fun with the post. This is especially true when you get great feedback from the students and businesses. You get to feel like what you do really matters.

What challanges are there?
To coordinate and plan events so that they don’t collide with other things happening at the University isn’t the easiest of tasks. The biggest challenge has been to know how to “sell an event” to companies as well as engaging the students to attend the events.

What have I learned?
I’ve leared a lot about work structure, employer branding and how companies, the University and teams work.
