I will be starting at Booth this fall.
A month or so ago, I saw a posting for a technical volunteer role.
The industry is something I'm looking to break into so I thought it would be a great way to get my foot in the door.
I eventually got in touch with the CEO and it turns out he's a Booth alumni (great news), but he was also looking for volunteers for some other marketing type things (of no interest to me).
A team from Booth got in touch with him regarding those other volunteer roles and are now working on it as a quarter project. Since the marketing type things would be VERY closely tied to what I am doing, the CEO expects me to work with the team.
The way I see it, since Booth really does not encourage ANY kind of interaction prior to the beginning of classes, would it be a faux-pas if I continued with this project? Would I in anyway piss the Optima team off? Am I overanalyzing?
Any and all thoughts would be appreciated!
