My name is Tamarra Bennett and I am a 24 year old university student about to commence my internship, in which I have been marketing an up and coming musician. I have been studying 'The Bachelor of Business in Convention and Event Management in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry' for the past 3 years and I have had various jos throughout my time studying that have prepared me for the professional workplace.
The most fulfilling job was when I worked with an internet based TV channel that focused on exposing raw musicians and artists. My position was an assistant director and my responsibilities included directing interviews and production as well as managing staff, volunteers, bands and fashion designers each saturday night.
During the week my duties were to prepare for each weeks event which encompassed two fashion shows, 5-7 musicians/bands, DJ's and interviews for each (with the rare photo shoot). This job has been my highlight as well as the most challenging role I have ever experienced and I hope to find another position that gives me the freedom and flexibility to be innovative and push myself to achieve the unthinkable.
