Frequently Asked Questions:
Q) Is this a paid programme?
A) No, the programme is unpaid. It's not an internship, rather, an ambassadors programme for undergraduate students who are into extra-curricular activities.
Q) How many hours do the ambassadors have to give per week?
A) As we mentioned, this isn't an internship programme or a job, and thus, there aren't any fixed hours of work. We completely understand that in the midst of the pandemic, students have online classes, part-time jobs, and household work to do. Therefore, we do not plan to pressurise our Edge ambassadors to give so many hours behind this. This programme will mainly consist of participating in programmes by TBS, and activities to promote the initiatives of TBS in their respective campuses, so don't worry about the workload!
Q) How many students will be accepted from each university?
A) We plan to take 2-3 people from each university. However, if we get really promising applications, the number might increase, so feel free to apply if you believe you're the right fit.
Q) Is this for Public University students only?
A) Definitely not! Any student from any corner of Bangladesh can apply. Let's work together for a better student community.
Q) How many days a week do we need to come to the office?
A) Zero. We are in the middle of a pandemic with infection and death tolls keeping us all in fear. The entire programme will be held online. If the situation improves, maybe we might hold a bi-monthly meetup at our premises, but it's not mandatory. Also, it's not confirmed whether we will have meetups. Even if we don't have meetups at all, all the treats will be due, don't worry!
Q) How many rounds are there in the application?
A) The initial screening round will consist of basic submission, including your CV and other important details. After that, we will move on to an interview round.
