Emiel van der Geest


Hi Guys! My name is Emiel and this year I will be the Commercial Officer of the EFR Board! I am 23 years old and in my spare time I like to practice all kinds of sports like football, fitness and running. I grew up in the well-known village of Kudelstaart, under the shadow of Amsterdam, but a little over 3 years ago I moved to Rotterdam where I started my bachelor in Economics and Business. In addition to this my move to Rotterdam was also marked by the start of my time at EFR with the START-committee.  In my second year I continued with the Erasmus Recruitment Platform committee after which I went on exchange to Bologna in my third year. After coming back from exchange I did not forget about EFR and was ready to apply for a board year!

As the Commercial Officer, my responsibilities include maintaining and expanding the vast company network of EFR. Among others, I visit a lot of companies during the year and advise companies in their recruitment strategies. The position contains a lot of external contact and strategic decision making as you are representing companies’ interest in EFR’s long term decisions. Also the position includes committee management as I supervise all the commercial positions within all committees of EFR.

I am very much looking forward to an inspiring year where I will develop myself, meet a lot of new people and of course have a lot of fun!
