Student Insight Series: Exploring Career Paths Into the Events Industry

February 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm MST

Are you excited about a career in events and hospitality, but worried about the current pandemic-instigated slowdown in the industry? 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:

  • What skills sill 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’s events professionals followed a sometimes surprising and nontraditional path to a successful career (and how you can, too)
