Student Insight Series: Exploring Career Paths Into the Events Industry

February 23 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

Are you excited about a career in events and hospitality, but worried about the current pandemic-instigated slowdown? The events business is still the place to be with many career paths you might not yet know about. Hospitality is the #5 employer of all major industries and is more than just wedding planning.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Which skills will make you more marketable: from marketing/communications to admin support, to creative, HR, education, and sales roles.
  • How getting your foot in the door positions you well with connections and skills when the events industry takes off again (and it will).
  • How to best market yourself to potential employers.
  • How today‚Äôs events professionals followed a sometimes surprising and nontraditional path to a successful career (and how you can, too).
