it was perfect in college
Student Center and Event Services (Current Employee), Irvine, CAAugust 17, 2014
Pros: free food
Cons: wage
works well in college but not room for improving skills. its not beneficial for ones resume when going into an entry level position. this does not provide good experience as much as a paid internship or program/ research would. Little to no room for networking and gaining new relationships within the company. Some event managers work harder than others.
