Hello! I was just seeking some advice on how to get my foot in the door for corporate event coordinating positions? I have done a few internship experiences throughout my college career and currently have a full-time operations manager job at a party rental company. I also hold a Bachelors degree in Business Management. The company I work with now is definitely a great experience as far as getting to know the industry a little better but I am definitely looking for a more corporate environment. Ideally I have been applying to event coordinator positions in the city, but I feel like nothing is happening with everything I apply to. I do not want to get discouraged, but any advice is always a help. Has anyone had the same struggles and/or any advice?

I was wondering if you would be interested in coordinating my wedding. I live in NYC, but I am getting married September 6th in Northeast Pennsylvania. The wedding activities will take place over the entire weekend at a summer camp. While I have already planned everything, I am interested in a day of coordinator or even a coordinator for the entire weekend (I would pay for the accommodations) to manage all activities and help set up. To get a better idea of what is involved, let me know if you are interested and then I can email you the wedding website.

Thank you,

You should join any reputed event management company. Prove yourself and get the desired designation.
