Hiya! I’m Jerusaa, a Magnet.me Campus Manager studying at Imperial College London. Becoming a Campus Manager has been one of the highlights of my year. Let me tell you how it happened. Hold tight, this is gonna be a fun ride! Here we go….
One day, during the summer holidays, I was scrolling through Facebook. Now, usually if I’m scrolling through Facebook, that means I’m procrastinating. But, this day I was scrolling through Facebook with a purpose – I wanted to find a job. As a student, finding a job that is flexible and fun is hard, but when I came across a post advertising Magnet.me, I decided to check it out.
I went to the official website for Magnet.me, to check out what they were really about. An organisation dedicated to find graduates a job, sounded amazing to me. As a student myself, I know it can be daunting to find a first job. But when I tried out Magnet.me, I realised it doesn’t have to be a scary process – in fact, it can almost be fun!
I applied for the position and had a Skype interview. The idea of having to do an interview made me nervous, but the Campus Manager Manager (Inception…) made me feel really comfortable, and like I was part of the team. When I finished the interview, I was actually smiling! I loved the ethos of the company, and really wanted this position. So, you could imagine how happy I was when I got the role.
Before I started the job, I went to a kick-off event. This was honestly one of the highlights, as I got to meet all the other fun people I would be working with, and got free drinks whilst we chatted. There are many Campus Managers, and we all work in a team to bring Magnet.me to the students. It was great to meet such talented people, and I am grateful to be apart of such an enthusiastic team.
Since beginning the job, I have been doing many things, from handing out merchandise to writing this blog. Having a variety, keeps it interesting. Magnet.me encourages us to bring our own interests to the table, enabling us to do jobs that we enjoy. And you’re not in it alone – everyone is willing to give a helping hand, whenever you need it. Being apart of a team makes the whole experience more entertaining.
I hope I’ve given you a little insight into the awesomeness of being a Campus Manager. We’re coming to the end of the first term, and I can’t believe what a great job we’ve done as team. I’m proud of all of us.
