What can CESIP do for you as a student?

Member

Get the opportunity to meet and establish contacts with interesting companies and other students at Chalmers; contacts that are favorable for the rest of your life. At the beginning of each academic year, we arrange academic and innovative events for all of our members, such as:

  • Resume & CV Workshops
  • Mock Interview Sessions and Preparation
  • Company Trips to Stockholm

Previous year’s CESIP members visited companies such as Netlight, Spotify, etc. During the fall, the entire CESIP organization celebrates North American Thanksgiving together by arranging and cooking up a traditional Thankgiving menu for all the members to enjoy.

In order to make all of this possible, the organisation needs to spread the word about the organization on campus, recruit new members, sell products to companies, and most importantly, arrange new relationships and maintain existing ones with companies in North America. The association would not exist without our hard-working members and their passionate work ethics.

As a member of CESIP you will primarily assist with raising funds for the scholarship that is granted to all CESIP interns. Any profit is directly invested in this grant. The scholarship is meant to cover expenses that are associated with the process of moving to the US.

Every year CESIP is looking for a new board and new members. The search begins roughly in January or February each year. (Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Instagram account.) CESIP will arrange one or multiple events where you can come and ask questions about anything from the visa process to how it is to be a member.

After these events it’s time to apply, send us your resumé as well as cover letter in english and we will get back to you shortly.

The requirement follows:
  • Full-time student at Chalmers University of Technology.
  • Member of the Student Union.
  • Swedish citizen or permanent residency
  • Passed at least 75 credits (HP) after the august reexams.
  • Passed at least 120 credits (HP) on departure (June 2022).
  • Not a previous member of CESIP, CETAC or AMCIP.
  • Members fee of 1200 SEK (This money will cover the Stockholm field trip.)

" As a member, you'll get plenty more than just a milestone on LinkedIn "

Board Member

As a board member you actively work with the organizations continuity while you support and help the members. The new board gets elected by the previous year’s board during the winter/spring and it is then up to the new board to recruit members for the upcoming academic year. The reqruitment process for board members is identical to that of members.

The chairman’s responsibility is to oversee and coordinate both the administrative and operational parts of CESIP. Among other, the tasks of the chairman can be to plan and hold meetings, represent the organization outwards, and take care of the visa process for our members.

As the treasurer, your role is simple. Your assignments consist of financial management and overview, keeping track of cash flow in-and-out from the association, and making sure our economy is in a good place.
