IEEE/HKN Student Officer Recruitment

Now that summer has arrived, it’s about time to start thinking about next school year, right? Wohoo! With the imminent season of homework and midterms also comes a new set of IEEE/HKN officers. That’s what this is about. IEEE/HKN at UW is an RSO focused on bringing EE students together and introducing them to and strengthening their relationships with industry. This year, we’re focusing on engaging the EE community by composing venues around getting to know each other and broadening our rapport with industry. I’d like to encourage you to consider joining us as an officer this coming school year, as you will get to shape the EE student experience at this university. We have meetings once a week, and there is some amount of time commitment outside of that, but you will find the experience to be incredibly rewarding.

Here is a link to the Catalyst survey, complete with the available officer positions and their descriptions. Submit your response for which position(s) you are most interested in, and give a brief explanation of why you’re interested (one overarching explanation is acceptable). If you submit a response, we will contact you later with further details. The deadline for submitting a response is July 7th.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us at Answering questions is fun!
