How can I get into event management?
posted on Friday, 08 April 2011 17:15

I have worked as a conference secretary in an international conference at a  Hong Kong university. I love the experience and would like to pursue my career in the industry.

I have a bachelor degree majoring in psychology and anthropoloy, with little experience in the field.

I have searched and sent several unsolicited cover letters to companies in the industry but have, so far, not received any responses.

Do you have any suggestions on how I can get into the industry? I know it is possible to take courses in the field but I cannot afford it.

Why not work for a hotel as a 'conference manager' ? Often enough, you have to hire out your banquet rooms for conferences and things like that. It will allow you to step into the industry of conferences to begin with, and then slowly work your way into event management companies. Cos then at least you got some exposure in organising conferences, and events this way.
