ExSIF Festival of Discovery drop-in stand
Grassed area by café entrance to Northcott Theatre (Area B)
We will be running a stand showcasing ExSIF and giving you a chance to meet committee in-person – in a drop-in format where you can come along while on campus. On the stand we will have general information on what we do as a society, information on what we have achieved over the past year, ExSIF Laptop stickers, a careers advice 'drop-in' section, and a stock-picking competition (running over the course of a week). This competition will provide an inisght into the day-to-day fluctuations in the stock market, and participants will learn about the importance of due diligence in investing. Some information will be presented via QR codes on laptops (to reduce contact points on the stand), and most other information will be on laptops to reduce paper usage.
As part of the ‘Give it a Go’ initiative by the student guild, we will be running a ‘careers in finance’ drop-in session (10-11am), where visitors can bring along their CV and get general careers advice from ExSIF's Careers Officer (2020/21) Hannah.
The stock-picking competition will be accessed via a QR code and visitors (and those abroad or shielding) can enter through a page on the ExSIF website.
Members of the 2020/21 and 2021/22 committees will be on the stand throughout the day to answer any questions you may have, help with any accessibility queries, and ensure the event is conducted in a safe manner in line with current COVID guidelines.
