Student leadership positions open within KURE 88.5FM

CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

KURE’s Board of Directors is in need of student leaders to fill open positions for this upcoming year.

Because involvement and leadership roles are important when searching for an internship or career, by investing your time into an exciting student-run organization (that hosts various unique, musical events and concerts) you are free to make any Board position into something larger-than-life, which will come in handy when it’s time to interview with a professional.

In any of the following positions, you will be required to attend weekly meetings and be willing to volunteer your time and efforts, as none of these are paid positions.
