Ni­cole Good­win, 22, of New­ing­ton, is do­ing a grad­u­ate pro­gram at event com­pany Arinex Why did you study the course and what did you like about it? I was al­ways in­ter­ested in events. I com­pleted a Bach­e­lor De­gree in teach­ing but felt it wasn’t for me so de­cided to gain a qual­i­fi­ca­tion in events by do­ing the Diploma of Events at Syd­ney TAFE. I liked the prac­ti­cal com­po­nents and found I could put all the the­ory from the class­room into prac­tice through vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, es­pe­cially the op­por­tu­nity to put our own event on from start to fin­ish.

What are your plans for the fu­ture? I am ex­cited to do the grad­u­ate pro­gram at Arinex. I’ll be work­ing and re­ceiv­ing train­ing and prac­ti­cal ex­pe­ri­ence across all ar­eas in­clud­ing con­fer­ences and ex­hi­bi­tions, spon­sor­ship, ac­com­mo­da­tion and mar­ket­ing … in the dis­tant fu­ture I might teach event man­age­ment. What ad­vice do you have for oth­ers who wish to get into the in­dus­try? Do as much vol­un­teer­ing as pos­si­ble, in­clud­ing an in­tern­ship if you can. Get the ex­pe­ri­ence while study­ing. Em­ploy­ers are look­ing for peo­ple with ex­pe­ri­ence in all ar­eas of event man­age­ment.
