Becoming an Organizer

Why become an IT Case Competition organizer?

A lot of things can take up your time when you are a student; besides classes, papers and exams, many of us juggle jobs, friends, and the occasional extra curricular event to boost the resumé. Apart from this, it would also be nice just to have some fun!
Taking part in the IT Case Competition organization will tick a lot of those boxes for you. First and foremost, the length and breadth of preparation efforts will offer plenty of experience and challenges. Volunteer work does not have to be just a matter of fulfilling a job description; ITCC aims to grow with the aid of the changing organisation’s many contributors, and we therefore look for volunteers from diverse backgrounds. We also aim to make sure you enjoy yourself! That is why we put an emphasis on workshops, having team dinners and ensure you can celebrate with the rest of the participants when our combined efforts have come to a successful conclusion.

DID YOU KNOW ... that an American study showed, that volunteering increases your chances of a job by 27%?

How much time will it take?

The time you will spend on the ITCC organisation will vary; in the start-up phase, a workshop will be held and a calendar of deadlines set forward. Depending on your area and role, you will spend between 2 and 5 hours a week in the initial phase, and up to 10 hours weekly in the two month prior to the event. If you are coming from outside Copenhagen, we offer to pay for transport and accommodation during the competition.

Below you will find detailed descriptions of the types of roles we are seeking to fill. Do not hesitate to contact us at info@itcasecompetition.com if you have any question.
