    Any admitted student of the Baruch MFE program, either current, alumni or incoming students.
  2. How can one apply?
    Self-petition. Just reply to this topic. Include your name and the position you are interested in.
  3. I'm not tech-savvy. Can I still apply?
    When there is a will, there is a way. We will provide technical training, or point you to the important documents you should read to perform the task. Most positions are non-geek-friendly.
  4. Will I be paid or rewarded something?
    There is no material reward involved. This is strictly voluntary positions.Nobody in Quantnet Team got paid and it will never be
  5. OK, no money then. What do I get to show for it?
    A lot of appreciation from members whose learning experience has been greatly enhanced by your selfless service.
    Membership to the super-geeks club. No, just kidding. You will have access to our private forum for Moderators and Administrators.
  6. How much time and effort do I have to put in?
    There is no set limit. We do expect you to put 110% effort in. That's the going rate for all of us at Quantnet.
  7. Why there are needs for more help now?
    We are growing very fast. Therefore, a need to be more organized and professional is inevitable. There is a buzz about our program that we are very friendly and active community. In fact, we may as well be the most friendly MFE program around. We like to build upon that.
  8. Are there any other reasons?
    Ok, if you so insist, that the core Quantnet team consists of graduating students and incoming students. The current students graduate this Fall while the full-time students (myself included) will do so after 3 semesters. While it sounds like still a long time away, it's always a good idea to prepare the transistion well in advance so there are no interruptions. By the time I graduate, we are confident that the new Quantnet team will be well prepared.
  9. What are the benefit of that?
    As a Baruch MFE graduate, you are forever linked to the reputation of the program as well as the quality of its students. The more qualified students we attract, the better reputation the program gets and so on. You are helping yourself in the end.
  10. Is this initiative spearheaded by the Math Dept, specially the Director Dan Stefanica?
    No, this is a student organization so everything is self-started by students. We are a very self-sufficient group. The Director, Prof. Dan Stefanica will undoubtedly offer his full support for any project that is meant to improve the students' learning experience and quality.

Welcome on board. Please see note to Frank above. You now become a moderator of Quantnet Social Hub.
 
Thanks for the positive response to Prof. Stefanica's email today. I think it's time to bring back this topic.
As you can see, we still have many unfilled positions since I posted this. At the same time, QN has grown tremendously. It's about time we step in and bring our website to another level. QN has been the irreplaceable part of our program and it deserves our best efforts.

As the current students will soon graduate and the new students just start, I think it's a good idea to find members who like to help with Quantnet's various needs. You don't have to be an MFE student to volunteer. Anyone with a computer and an internet connection can do anything.

We need lot of people to help with marketing our website, run daily operation, build contents, etc.

As long as you are willing to help, I can always put you in a position where your skills can be most appreciated.
