After the deadline, you will receive an email or other form of communication indicating whether or not you have been invited for an interview.
Interviews generally last around 30 minutes. The interviewer or interviewers will ask you a series of questions concerning your motivations and skills for the position. You should come well prepared.
You may be asked to provide references. Your references should be people who can attest to your previous work, for example a former supervisor or coworker, clients, teachers or people in organizations you’ve volunteered for.
If the unit does not operate with a General Assembly (GA), you will get contacted by the interviewers who announce if you are elected for the position or not.
If the unit operates with a general assembly, one candidate will be nominated for the position. In some cases, there may be none candidates nominated, or there may be a split nomination. Candidates that have not applied and/or not been interviewed and/or not been nominated, can announce their candidacy, including bench proposals by themselves or another person who is present at the GA. Candidates who are not nominated, but wish to bench for a position, must inform the unit within 24 hours before the start of the GA. If more than one candidate, the other candidates needs to step outside of the GA during the speeches.
Each candidate holds their speech for two – 2 – minutes. Candidates for the position as president holds their speech for three – 3 – minutes.
After the speech, the audience gets to ask questions to the candidate. The audience will then cast their votes, either written or electronically.
We wish you the best of luck with the process!
