This is not me.
So, when I graduated, I was earning a bit of money here and there by babysitting, tutoring, nannying, etc- all while going on auditions. I really started to hate the flexibility of it all. Sure, it gave me a lot of free time (which I spent doing nothing), but I wanted something stable, something to build on for the future. So what did I do? I went on Craigslist! I spent weeks searching and applying for jobs, hearing nothing back. Then, lo and behold, I got an interview for an event planning company!
I'll plan your wedding and NOT steal the groom!
The invitation to interview said specifically to 'wear what you would wear to meet a client'. A sartorial challenge! Excellent! I took it as my first test. I read the rest of the email to see if I could figure out any other clues about what to wear. The first clue- it was a group interview held in a park. What did that tell me? FLATS. No way was I gonna be the one to lose a heel in mushy grass. Also, I decided to go bold and assume everyone would be wearing impeccable, if not dark, business suits. So I decided on my bright yellow blazer! Professional, and yet you know something about me right away.
Basically, I nailed it at the interview ;) (and had a lot of fun with the other interviewees It really was a tough competition). I was asked back for a second interview that same night and offered the job! So today marks the one month anniversary of me becoming an Event Coordinator at Moments by Wayne!
I couldn't be happier. I've done event coordination in the past, and I love it! I'm very proud to be on the team of such an illustrious company as well. We focus on high-end weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. We have just been named the Number 1 Wedding Planner in Los Angeles, Number 1 Wedding Planner in California, and made it into the Top 10 Wedding Planners in the United States by Wedding Industry Experts. I'm very excited to see where this goes, and am equally excited to have a job in a creative field! Check out our website, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook.
