Student Insight Series: Taking on a Pandemic Career Search
April 21, 2021 @ 3:00 pm– 4:00 pm CDT
Job hunting is difficult no matter what skill level or trade. Throw in COVID-19 and how it’s affected the events industry and we now must rethink how we market ourselves, and possibly even reevaluate what segment of the ever-changing meeting and events industry we should explore for career options.
PCMA’s Student Insight Series continues discussing these challenges with this exciting panel including a recent graduate who has successfully navigated the job hunt, a student ready to graduate, and an event industry HR professional who will share their stories and successes of job searching mid-pandemic. Our moderator, Lauren Kramer, known for her role as a recruiter for industry professionals, will walk this panel through their job hunting strategies and suggestions for the current Meeting & Events Industry job market.
1) Learn best practices for using social media to market yourself. Discover enhanced or new social media job posting options.
