STUDENT FEATURE: CHLOE CHAPMAN
Chloe Chapman studied event management at Martin’s Melbourne campus, and has since started working in the industry as a Corporate Golf Assistant. We caught up with Chloe to find out more about what a Corporate Golf Assistant does, and to see how she’s enjoying her new role!
What is your current job role?
“My current role is Corporate Golf Assistant,” says Chloe. “My job entails all the preparation and collateral for our charity and business golf days around Australia, as well as the running of the day itself.”
How has your Martin course prepared you for this role?
“The teachers at Martin strived to give us as much ‘real life’ experience as possible by bringing real situations into our classes,” she says. “This taught me quite a bit about the reality of the industry and how I can strive within it.”
What skills are essential for working in the events industry?
“Working in the events industry can be very stressful at times, but if you can handle yourself well under pressure this could be the perfect industry for you!” says Chloe.
“Having a great love for events really turns it from a ‘job’ into something you love. It is important to have great time management skills and attention to detail; every little detail counts when you are preparing for an event.”
What is your favourite thing about working in the industry?
“The fast paced environment really excites me – there is never a dull moment in the events industry,” says Chloe. “You get to meet a large range of people working within events and this helps broaden your network within the industry.”
A big thank you to Chloe for sharing with us! The events industry is blessed to have someone as motivated as you working for them – we expect great things!
