We are looking for students to work at the welcome ceremony for new students starting fall semester of 2022. The ceremony is on August 25 in Aula Medica. And yes, since the ceremony is in August you will have to be a student at KI also next semester. There are two different types of jobs available, read more about them below.

About the jobs

Every semester KI arranges a welcome ceremony for new students. The ceremony wishes the new students welcome and informs and inspires them for their upcoming life as students at KI. We are looking for students who would like to work at the ceremony as hosts to lead the ceremony and students to join the student panel who will answer questions and give advice about the student life at KI. 

Important dates:

June-august: Start-up meeting (digital) and scriptwriting (remote)

August 22nd: Rehearsal in the afternoon (Aula Medica)

August 25th: Welcome ceremony (Aula Medica) 

Two hosts to lead the ceremony

We are looking for two students who will lead the ceremony from start to end. You will be the one welcoming everyone and introducing the speakers up on stage. You will also share stories from your own student life. It is important that you are comfortable talking to a large audience. Ideally (but not mandatory), we are looking for two friends or classmates to host the ceremony together so that the two of you have a good interplay from start. Let us know in your application who you are applying with. 

You are expected to write your own script, but with guidelines and help from the team at Student Communication. Approximately we believe that you will need to put in a total of 20h. The hour rate is 150 SEK.  

Three students to join the student panel

One part of the program is the student panel which discusses and answers questions about life as a student at KI. We are looking for students who are well-informed about student life at KI (perhaps you are involved in many student activities). You should feel comfortable sharing your tips and experiences in front of a large audience. We will send you questions and topics in advance that you can be prepared to talk about at the ceremony. 

For this job, you don't need to know the other students beforehand. This is a good opportunity to also get to know students at programmes other than your own.

Approximately we count that you will need to put in a total of 6h. The hour rate is 150 SEK.   

How to apply

Send in your application to ki-student@ki.se with your personal letter where you tell us about yourself, your spear time, and why you are interested in this job. Also, include if you have done something similar in the past. Please include information about what study programme and year you are in.

Last application date: May 22nd 2022. Interviews are ongoing and the positions may be filled earlier.

If you are applying for the job as a host together with a friend, please write in the application the name of your friend with who you would like to host the ceremony together with. Both will need to send in an application separately.
