Events managements is a good career choice for many people, but it is also a very specific skill. You need to be sure that managing events lies within your skill set before you decide to go for it as a job. Luckily, there are many ways you can test this before deciding whether to train in events management. You can:
- Help organise events in your current role. Ask to be a part of any social committees there are and speak to the events management team to see how you can get involved on a practical level.
- Talk to people in this line of work to see what their experiences are. They will be able to give you a realistic picture of events management.
- See if you can get some experience in your own time. Take on volunteer roles in events for causes that you care about outside of your corporate job.
