Apply to SAIA with the help of inpiring words from our head of PR on why you should join SAIA!

May 31, 2020

Do you like posting on social media or to keep people updated? Or maybe you’re really creative and can create posters or really good at taking photos? Then you should try applying for the PR post on our annual Discharge Meeting that’s happening this Saturday!

Remember, tomorrow is the LAST DAY to be able to send your application with a cover letter and CV to us by emailing rafaelrodrigoescalera@gmail.com if you want to apply for a position. After tomorrow you can still run for a post but on spot during the meeting on Saturday with a persuading speech to present for us! We are looking forward hearing from you!

Why should you be working with SAIA? Other than the fact that it is Stockholm’s biggest international affair association it’s also the best working place, well according to Petra - the current head of PR. If you want more reason to apply for the Head of PR position then read what she has to say here and maybe your name will be under the position Head of PR or maybe Deputy of head of PR.
