Getting Involved in Human Resources Committee

At the present, there are no special requirements in order to get involved in the group, apart from the interest in HR and motivation to work. However, other factors such as experience in HR, special studies, projects, etc can surely help and are very much appreciated in the progress of the group.

The HRC is a way for new members to get involved at the European level. It creates the opportunity for people to work in an international field, where they can develop their basic skills of working in a foreign language and in HR. They will help develop new strategies on how to reach new members, how to encourage people to get more involved, and they will have the possibility to use the knowledge already gained at the local level, in their home antenna.

The work is composed of small tasks, which added up (after some period) constitute a big common task for the whole group.

Experienced members can work with less experienced ones and coordinate the work of the whole group or certain subgroups. It depends on their motivation and ambitions. The candidates for the last level should have the ability of self-motivation, as well as the ability to motivate the whole group. They coordinate all the members in their work, give advice, participate in the weekly meetings and check if all tasks have been correctly accomplished, in due time.
