Throughout his time studying at North Carolina State, I have had many opportunities to develop my skills in classes and through different assignments. The following is just a brief look into some of the courses and work I has completed to gain more experience in the field of Parks, Recreation and Tourism
For my class PRT 458 (Special Event Planning) I had to get hands on experience from a event planning company. I chose to work with Classic Party Rental. While working as a Classic Party Rental I gained hands on experience in the process of true planning and management of an special event planning company. I learned about the day to day operations for Classic Party Rental and how each department (Sales, Inventory, Operations) work together to achieve one common goal.
Apart of my degree requirement, I need to complete an internship. I choice to do my internship with Sport and Speed Institue, where I was able to gain experience in coaching, running a workout group, scheduling, as well as running a business. During my internship I worked with multiple high school and middle school student-athletes on preparing them for their respective sport seasons.
