    Well if you do follow the above poster's advice, I would replace  360 with  2 \pi .

    I can't really make any suggestions without knowing what your job would entail.

    Just talk about stuff you've done before that would help perform the task at hand. Also, don't go all robotic - use the time to let them get to know you.

    2pi noscope :rofl: don't forget to talk about your mad C4 'skillz'.

    But really, find out what the role entails, what ideas you have to improve the societies, maybe an idea for a fun social, what relevant skills you have, past experience etc.

    Anyone in a position of authority in a society must carry themselves with confidence. Before you can convince other people that you are a better candidate than those you are running against, you yourself must be sure of the fact that you are indeed BETTER. Having convinced yourself of such, you must then proceed to show and persuade the electorate just how unsuitable the other candidates are. Be careful to disguise ad hominem attacks as carefully considered criticisms with a factual basis.

    Hope this helps x
