Andreea Barbu –  Marketing Manager – 2020/2021

About me

Hello everybody! My name is Andreea and starting with 1st of August I embarked on the ESN journey as the Marketing Manager of the fantastic 13th Board! Alongside my part-time board position, I will start my master’s degree in data science and Marketing at Erasmus School of Economics. Furthermore, I am originally from Romania, where I spent all my life before coming to the Netherlands. I am a big supporter of volunteering, passion that I discovered in Highschool when I joined different NGOs and international projects. As I enjoy working in teams I was part of various student organizations, chaired different committees and already gained board experience by joining the Eastern European Students (EESA) Board as their Marketing Officer (2018- 2020) and the Turing Students Rotterdam (TSR) Board in the same position (2019- 2020). By being part of such different teams, I had the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and create amazing offline and online content together with my committee members.

Why a board year?

Why another board year? I feel that I do not fit in a committee member position anymore and I cannot imagine myself not being part of the student cultural and social life. I am a very curious person that uses her creativity all the time by challenging myself to give 110% to my team. Moreover, I have been pretty involved in the ESN culture, so I am excited to work for its branding. I strongly believe that being part of the ESN Board will add to my experience even more and enhance my organizational and leadership skills.

Shortly, I am looking forward to adding value to the Marketing side of this student foundation by working with content and design that really showcase why ESN is an important “ambassador” for international students. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to approach me on the ESN social media channels. See you at our amazing events!

Function Description

The Marketing Manager of ESN Rotterdam makes sure the social media accounts (Facebook & Instagram mostly) are constantly updated. Also the external offline communication belongs to the Marketing Manager, like posters, merchandise, board clothing and banners. These are all very fun and interesting tasks, but they do take up a lot of time. That is why the Marketing Manager is supported by both the Marketing and Content Committee. The active members in those committees help with bringing new, creative marketing ideas to the table. They also take charge of the ESN Rotterdam Instagram Feed and create content like videos, photos & blogs.
