After graduation I hope to do event planning, but it seems as though all jobs in the “real world” require experience just to get hired.  But how do I get experience if no one will hire me?!  Two Solutions:

Internship:  This summer I interned at the Corridor Business Journal doing marketing and event planning. A summer full of planning everything from banquets, to book readings, to golf tournaments gave me some of that “experience” and at the end of the summer resulted in a job!

Student Organization: My freshman year I joined the organization SCOPE which in the University’s student run concert production group. Along with planning and promoting concerts at the school, I am the special projects director now, so I get to plan events for the members of SCOPE.

Hi! My name is Lindsey Thompson.  I grew up in Clear Lake, Iowa and am currently a senior at the University of Iowa.  I currently work as a promotional event planner for SCOPE Productions and for the Corridor Business Journal and hope to continue with a similar career after graduation somewhere out of the midwest.  In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my friends, going to concerts, and cooking.
