Seriously, it's so much fun! We've cut down the application a lot because in the past it's been way too long and formal considering what the AdBoard is really all about: we want students who love KCSA and want to get more involved, bringing whatever skills and experience they have available to the table.
We do have "official" departments and even titles, but they're more for formality's sake, and we tend to share responsibilities across departments. Not only does this allow people to work on things they're really interested in, but it provides an opportunity to gain experience in numerous areas of running an organization. Personally, I feel joining KCSA and eventually joining AdBoard is one of the best decisions I've made during my years at UIUC (right up there with picking my major!). It's a great way to get relevant, transferrable experience without the same demand of, for example, an internship.
Our application is live starting NOW! For time's sake, we'll accept applications through Sunday, April 16th (so think of it as closing on Sunday at 11:59pm, like those dang Compass assessments). Once you submit your application, we'll work to set up interviews—which are more like informal gatherings to tell us more about what you want to do on AdBoard and what ideas you have. No business suits and no "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" questions—just bring your smile and enthusiasm!
We hope to hear from many of you!!! In particular, we're looking to grow our media marketing base—so if you like social media, blog writing, etc., this would be a lovely fit for your 2017-18 schedule!
If you have any questions for current members about what it's like being on the board, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
