My name is Dev and please consider voting for me
Devkant Sharma is a masters student here at BU. We wanted to know what does he think about the SU? And how will he improve it? We spoke to him to find out.
When asked how he would improve the running of volunteering and the clubs and societies, Devkant drew from his experience working as a student ambassador back home in India.
‘I have deep knowledge about the things that students expect, and ‘Know that I can help them’
Speaking about how he stands out from the other nominees, he spoke about. Having a deeper understanding of the working world, and how that would easily help him. he knows what is ‘mandatory for placement and career opportunities’ and ‘what is happening in the job market’.
Devkant in his manifesto spoke about collaborating consultancies and organisations that ensure better job opportunities for students. When pressed about these collaborations, he spoke about having personal relationships with many IT and manufacturing companies, allowing for him to encourage them to come to career fairs. As part of his career, this sort of things. have become second nature to Devkant. ‘I was running my own consultancy in India, and now recruited more than 18,000 students by now, and know how to make it very convenient’. It’s clear Devkant knows what he’s doing.
Finally, we spoke to Devkant about landlords and letting agencies, a big part of his manifesto. ‘there are many students who are. Cheated by their landlords; they are told to pay rent 6 months in advance and sometimes the accommodation’s is too far from the university. I cannot challenge the legal authorities, but I can make things easier to spot to stop students feeling cheated’.
