Want to join DJIM’s Executive?

The Dalhousie Journal of Interdisciplinary Management is recruiting two new executive members, including a brand-new position! We’re looking for applications from enthusiastic graduate students from the Faculty of Management for an External Communications Co-Chair position and a newly created Treasurer position. DJIM offers graduate students in the Faculty a unique opportunity to learn about the academic publishing process from a variety of perspectives. Both of these positions are great opportunities to gain important skills that will be helpful for your future professional aspirations! Though there will be some training provided in the final weeks of the semester, the majority of the responsibilities for the positions will not begin until September 2013. Both positions require someone who can commit until April 2014.

If you’re interested, please read the position profiles below and send an email with a brief statement of interest and your resume to djim@dal.ca. All applications must be received by Monday, March 18th at 5pm.
