What is it like working as an Event Coordinator?
Event Coordinator in Chicago:
"Be Prepared to Do Anything and Everything."
Pros: Working at a university has great networking opportunities, especially if you're interested in learning more about higher ed and student affairs. So being able to be a face to a local premiere university is a great position. I also like that I am able to assist in facilitating events that bring together people who want to give local students opportunities to learn more college.
Cons: I often do things that I am not clear about or know a lot about. My manager and all those that I answer to haven't clearly trained me on a lot of things and have high expectations which makes my job very frustrating at times. Also, because it is only part-time, financially it can be difficult to be so available when I literally can't afford to be because my commute is so long and costly.
