    Anyone heard of AIESEC?

    I've been a member of a global student society called AIESEC for about eight months now, and the thought has only just crossed my mind that with so many students on this board from so many countries, some of you might have heard of it.

    We operate in 107 countries worldwide - I was just curious if anyone had an awareness of who we are and what we do?

    I worked in the Calcutta chapter. I had a dynamic job as the Service and Learning manager to imbibe a culture of trainee-AIESECer interactions to bring the two together. I made the AIESECer and trainee catch up and feel at ease with each other meeting each other both formally and informally (which was lacking a fair bit in the organisation at the time). I organised events like the cultural evening, a day when we showed all the trainees the movie Lagaan. In the whole I was creating a whole culture of service and learning in the organisation.

    I was also the alumni co-ordinator. Also, I worked with the NGO section (exchange) for half my time in AIESEC and the companies side (exchange) in the other half. I went to two national conferences and made friends from all over India (and the world as you can consider some trainees as good friends.) Over all, I had a great time in the organisation.

    Also, great to know that you are Vice President Exchange. May you facilitate many exchanges for Southampton!

    Wow, sounds like you were pretty heavily involved. National conferences in India must be amazing, I've been to two in the UK and they're great, and that's just with 170-200 people there.

    Trainee relations is an area I'm going to be working on a lot, I may have to come to you for some advice! I have a Manager whose job it is to look after that side of things, but I'm still going to be heavily involved myself.

    National conferences were great. The jives, the late night parties going to the wee hours and then attending conferences all day. Great experiences I will always cherish.

    Feel free to come for advice any time mate.
