Get in touch with motivated fellow students and an alumni network made up of more than 800 former FSA members, many of whom now work at renowned companies. You also have the opportunity to get in contact with recruiters from large companies. Naturally, being a part of a committee within the largest financial study association in the Netherlands is an excellent addition to your resumé.
You will receive trainings from companies such as Van Lanschot Kempen, PwC and Deloitte. Additionally, tailor-made trainings are provided to gain experience and master useful tools, such as working with Excel and furthering presentation and acquisition skills.
Being a committee member provides ample opportunities to develop your personal and professional skills. Because all FSA committees are relatively small, you will have a lot of responsibility. This gives you the freedom to give a personal twist to the project you are working on.
If you are interested in being a part of an FSA committee, you can send an email to [email protected]. You will be invited for an orientation meeting, during which the different possibilities of involvement within the FSA will be discussed.
You can apply for a committee by submitting your resume at the CV button and your four preferred committees at the Merged Documents button.
After the board decides that your resumé is sufficient to become a committee member, you may be invited for an interview with two members of the board.
All applicants will hear before September 20th whether they have been selected for a committee.
HOW TO APPLY FOR AN FSA COMMITTEE?
The application deadline for our committees 2023/2024 closes on the 10th of September, 23:59h. If you are interested in joining a FSA committee, we kindly ask you to apply before the deadline. You can apply for a committee by submitting your resume at the CV button and your four preferred committees at the Merged Documents button. We will invite you to an interview with two of our board members if your resume is sufficient to organise an event. All candidates will be informed on Tuesday the 19th.
Do you want to receive more information about the different committees before you apply? We totally understand! Don’t hesitate to send an email to [email protected] for more information or to plan an informal coffee meeting to explore the possibilities for you at the FSA. During this meeting, we will shortly discuss the FSA in general, all the committees, and answer any questions you may have. We hope to see you soon!
An important part of my board year was finding out where my interests are. My position as external relations gave me an insight in different companies in different sectors. Partly because of the projects that I coordinated, my interest in Corporate Finance and M&A grew. The London Banking Tour eventually convinced me to apply for a position in Investment Banking, which lead to my current position at Barclays.
