A true experience in Protocol
Protocol Officer (Former Employee) – Fort Meade, MD – May 19, 2016
Basically, I was an event coordinator. I put together 124 of 164 events in one year. Meetings, promotion ceremonies, and more. The people I worked for were wonderful and most complimentary. They gave me a Star Award for my service.
The people I worked with and under were another story but I believe it was just inexperience and personality conflicts in this situation. Although I loved the work itself, the restrictions to dress, and inability to respond to requests from the guests due to rules, (situations where prior, I had been awarded for going above and beyond were considered unacceptable in this position) was stifling.
We organized tours for VIPs and escorted them wherever they had to go. The people were fascinating and the job constantly moving.
Free meals, and fascinating VIPs.
