Hello! My name is Anapat Wongkumjan, I’m 22 years old and am currently in my second year of Marine Technology. I am currently the Deputy Project Manager and am responsible for marketing in Njord.
Why did you join Njord?
Ever since I started at NTNU I’ve always wanted to engage myself in student activities. Some of my previous volunteer positions were mostly social and for fun, so I wanted to challenge myself with something different and experience new things. That’s why I couldn’t pass the opportunity to join Njord!
What is your role in Njord?
My responsibilities in Njord are mainly marketing, follow-up of members and recruitment of new members. Since the organization is growing rapidly, we’ve realized we need to focus more on marketing. Thus, we are looking for someone to fill a dedicated marketing position. Some of the tasks may include planning, implementation and follow-up of PR, operation of the website and social media platforms and development and production of market material.
What is it like being a part of Njord?
It's very fun! Being a part of the event from start to finish and seeing how it turns out is rewarding. We always try to think outside of the box and come up with new ideas on how to work to achieve our goals. In addition to the learning benefits, we also have a lot of fun during social gatherings, both digitally and physically. Since we don’t have too many members, you get to know everyone well.
Why do you think others should join?
Being a part of Njord helps you grow both as a person and in experience. You will also be able to work with industry-leading companies and other motivated students. In addition, you will be a part of a rapidly growing student organisation. I can only recommend everyone to JOIN!
