There are benefits to being a member of the Committee:
- You will meet almost everyone in the Hall and have the opportunity to earn the respect of your peers.
- A learning experience that will stand you in good stead for committee work in other organisations.
- A very good point to add to your CV and a talking point at interviews.
- A boost to your internship and job applications.
- I can write character references for Committee members. This can mean a lot more than a reference from your college tutor, since they will only see you for an hour a week or so and can only write about your academic side: I can comment on much broader aspects of your personality and suitability for a job.
- If you do a good job, I will guarantee you a room in Hall next year.
- If you do a very good job, I will try to get you your choice of room next year.
