Position : Industrial Relations Officer
Hi, my name is Aditi and my main responsibilities as the industrial relations officer are:
• Build mutually beneficial relationships with a variety of engineering companies
• Support the society members build their employability skills by organising workshops and networking panels
• Manage societies’ LinkedIn page and use it as a tool to connect with experts in academia and industry
Whenever I thought of a career, I knew I wanted to do something that benefits the economy, environment, and people all at the same time. I believe that studying engineering would help me accomplish that. I also wanted to do a course that constantly challenges me and make me push my limits. I specifically chose Electronics and Communication Engineering because this field offers diverse career options and the possibility for growth is endless here. I also wanted my degree to be mainly about practical work and giving presentations and explain my approach and my findings in a very systematic and confident way. Which would equip me with very important technical and transferable skills that I can use to build my career with.
Why Women in Engineering society?
I was introduced to the society through the Welcome social in 2018. I enjoyed that social so much that I decided to run for the role of first year rep and got elected. This society for me was a place that brought out the best in me, introduced me to the best mentors and role models I could every ask for and helped me grow personally and professionally. I enjoyed my involvement with the society so much in the first year that I decided to take up the role of Vice President in second year and Industrial Relations officer. Working with this society is one of those things that you cannot stop once you start and realise how rewarding it is!
