Samuli Yli-Salomäki TEK-yhdyshenkilöksi / for TEK Contact Person 2023

­Moi!

Olen Samuli Yli-Salomäki ja haen Tietokillan vuoden 2023 TEK-yhdyshenkilöksi.

Koen TEKin olevan meille tärkeällä asialla ja tämän takia haenkin rooliin, jotta voin toimia kiltaa hyödyttävänä linkkinä TEKin suuntaan. TEK tarjoaa opiskelijoille monia hyödyllisiä jäsenetuja ja palveluita, ja roolissa pyrkisin lisäämään tietoisuutta TEKistä, etenkin fuksien keskuudessa. Kuluneena syksynä olen toiminut ISOna, joten tämä mainonta onkin jo monille fukseille tuttua. :wink:

Opiskelijoiden hyvien jäsenetujen lisäksi TEK pystyy tarjoamaan killalle paljon. Yksi tärkeimmistä tavoitteistani onkin aktiivisesti etsiä tapoja, joilla tämän toteutuminen voidaan varmistaa. Eräs tapa tähän on osaltani mahdollistaa sujuva yhteistyö killan eri toimikuntien kanssa, mikäli esimerkiksi löytyy tapahtuma tai tilaisuus, jota TEK voisi sponsoroida. Lisäksi pyrin selvittämään muita mahdollisia tapahtumia tai vierailuja yhteistyössä TEKin kanssa ja välittämään näistä tietoa. Yleisesti tavoitteeni on olla helposti lähestyttävissä kaikissa mahdollisissa TEKiin liittyvissä asioissa.

Haen myös Tietokillan hallitukseen. Koen TEK-yhdyshenkilön olevan hyödyllinen lisä hallitukseen ja mahdollistaisi entistä paremmin roolissa toimimisen. Hallituksessa oleminen toisi mahdollisuuden vaikuttaa kunnolla killan asioihin ja viedä kiltaa entistä parempaan suuntaan. Olen ihmisenä järjestelmällinen ja ajanhallinta luonnistuu hyvin, mikä on tärkeä ominaisuus näissä rooleissa. Yleisesti vahvuutenani pidän myös suurta kiinnostustani ja asennettani tehtävää kohtaan. Tartun mielelläni uusiin haasteisiin ja haluan osaltani toimia aktiivisesti killan eduksi. Pidän myös huolen siitä, että uudet fuksit saavat TEK-vyöt heti haalarien kanssa.

Vastaan mielelläni kysymyksiin sekä täällä että TG:ssä @YliSamuli

Hi!

I’m Samuli Yli-Salomäki and I’m applying to be the guild’s next TEK Contact Person.

In my view, TEK is doing meaningful work and that is why I’m applying to the position so I can act as a link between the guild and TEK in a way that is beneficiary to the guild. TEK offers its student members many useful benefits and services, and my goal would be to increase awareness of TEK, especially among fuksis. During the past autumn, I have been an ISO, so this type of advertising is familiar to some of them. :wink:

In addition to the good membership benefits, TEK can also offer a lot to the guild. One of my main goals is to actively look for ways to make sure that this potential can be realized. One way of achieving this is by enabling smooth cooperation with the guild’s committees to, for example, find an event that TEK could sponsor. Additionally, I aim to find out about other possible events or visitations in association with TEK and inform the guild about them. Generally, my goal is to be easily approachable in all matters related to TEK.

I’m also applying to the guild’s board. I view that TEK Contact Person would be a useful addition to the board and would further acting in the role. Being on the board would enable me to contribute and improve the guild even more. I see myself as an organized person with good time management skills, which are both important qualities. Generally, my strengths also include my great interest and attitude toward the role. I enjoy new challenges and I want to actively do what is best for the guild. I will also make sure that the new fuksis get the TEK belts at the same time as overalls.

I’m happy to answer any questions either here or on TG @YliSamuli

Hi Samuli!
Great that you’re interested in TEKing this responsibility!

Few questions

  1. TEK has hard time reaching students of Otaniemi, since their attention is also valued by companies that do partnership with TiK. How would you bring TEK to the hearts and minds of TiK-students?

  2. What kind of help could TEK provide especially to the students and graduates of Computer Science?

  3. How many kampaviineri are you able to eat over a course of an average meeting?

  4. Can you tell me a TEK-pun?

Hi Visa! Thank you for the interesting questions!

  1. I have noticed the same problem, and I aim to come up with ways to change that. My goal would be to increase TEK’s presence in guild events. As I mentioned in my application, this could be done by having TEK sponsor a guild event. In exchange TEK could, for example, receive visibility in the form of logos and/or I could give a short speech on the subject. Telegram is also useful in raising awareness. There I could inform guild members about different TEK events or TEK membership in general. In addition to all this, I would look for new ideas regarding this issue during the year.

  2. TEK can provide help in many areas. One practical benefit is that TEK provides salary recommendations. It can be hard to know how much to ask for, and TEK offers a good starting point for a salary request. TEK can also help with salary negotiations and related matters in a way that takes into account our own field of Computer Science. TEK can also help with job search in the form of guides, events, and trainings. You can also have your (summer) job contract checked out as TEK provides legal assitance.

  3. I have not tried eating many kampaviineri consecutively, but my educated guess would be a giganTEK amount.

  4. By using a high TEK computer, at least one such pun can be deTEKted in my reply. :smile:

Hi Filip (and ghostwriters Suvi and Noora)! Thank you for the great questions!

  1. I think this position has great potential for both opportunities and personal growth. First and foremost, this role would be a great opportunity for me to do something beneficial for the guild and its members, which would be very rewarding. Due to the nature of being a contact person, there would also be opportunities to make new connections and meet new people. It would also increase my skills in networking and being able to spot new opportunities, to name a few. Hopefully, I grow as a person in the process.

  2. As mentioned above, it is not easy for TEK to reach students. Therefore, in my opinion, the guild could provide TEK valuable exposure and as a result of that, new members. With more members, TEK has more influence and can pursue important issues. If TEK were to sponsor an event, it could include that TEK would be visible and the attendees would learn and hear more about TEK. In short, the guild could provide new ways for TEK to reach CS students. I also think that it is important to have discussions with TEK as to what they see as being most beneficial for them in return for sponsorship. This would help in finding more sponsorship opportunities.

  3. One of the most common types of events the guild organizes is sitsit. Especially the fancier sitsit have great potential for sponsorship. Perhaps a logo on the song booklet and a speech / donkeybridge acknowledging TEK. Fuksisitsit could be great for this as it would also help TEK reach the new fuksis. Muistinnollaus could be a suitable event as well. However, as I have said before, I am very open to suggestions from the guild’s committees. My goal would be to work with the committees to find new opportunities and if a suitable event is found, I would try to make the sponsorship happen.

  4. I’m not sure if it’s realisTEK that I am creative enough to come up with new fantasTEK puns that even resemble the characterisTEKs of a TEK pun or that I’d be TEK-savvy enough to post them here. Sorry!

Samuli
