What Skills Does a President Get Out of the Job?

After a year of being President you will have learned the nuances of maintaining relations and motivations of your team. It will help you to better understand institutional and personal relations, especially in areas where the two interlock. The function demands attention and care when cracks are spotted, and at times a delicate or firm hand to soothe problems, therefore teaching you the value of appropriateness and swiftness of action. The position is doable as a full-time student, but it can be irregular and you will need a flexible schedule.

We look forward to receiving your application. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us via info@teimun.org.
