The new Title Club joins 501 other student clubs registered with the Students’ Society of McGill University (SSMU). Students who attend one of their Executive Networking General Seminar meetings, which occur for 30 minutes on a daily basis, have the opportunity to come up with new titles to “DIY their own position.”
“We offer a tailored extracurricular experience that no other student club can provide,” Guiding Founder and Secretary General of Internal and External Managers Max Fischer said. “We believe in our members’ communication skills, leadership abilities, and results-driven, customer-centric synergy.”
When pressed on how the Title Club provides communication and leadership opportunities, members referred to the club’s 5,000 Facebook likes.
“Every member contributes to our readability by ‘liking’ posts, they are all our social media influencers and brand ambassadors,” Social Media Senior Strategist Victor Verbaler said. “We contribute as much to the average McGill student’s daily life as Building 21.”
The Title Club has faced organizational difficulties with new departments, but its members are confident they can still use the club to their advantage.
“I was only able to secure my internship because I had experience managing others,” Tommy Triharde, one of the club’s 30 vice-presidents, said. “I don’t get why people don’t spend five minutes of their day yelling out ideas and taking credit for them more often.”
