In this week’s Off the Charts article, I want to give you all more insight i what it is like being the treasurer of Asset | Economics.
At first, let me introduce myself to you all. My name is Jiri van Baren, I am 22 years old and did three years of committee work at Asset | Economics before I applied for a board year at Asset | Economics. I am currently in my Bachelor “Economie en Bedrijfseconomie” and still playing soccer in my hometown.
Why am I doing a board year?
I applied for a board year because of several reasons. One of these reasons is that it seemed like a great opportunity to develop certain skills you can only develop in practice Examples of these skills are leading meetings and solving problems. Next to this, it is a nice addition to my resume since I only had to do 1 course and my bachelor thesis at the start of this year. Lastly, I think a board year can bring a lot of beautiful and fun moments, which is definitely important!
To give you an idea about my tasks during the week, I will tell something about both the financial aspect and other matters at Asset | Economics. Furthermore, I will give an insight in the financial tasks I am doing for Asset in general, besides Asset | Economics.
