In early June, I came across an events company on Twitter and after doing some research, I contacted them for an informational interview. The principal got back to me right away and suggested that I volunteer at one of their events the next week to learn more about the company.
I went to the event full of anticipation. I thought that this would be a great way to get to know the team while doing something fun. The event was well put together and the participants enjoyed themselves. However, the principal, who planned the event, left after 10 minutes and didn’t return. I thought it was a little bit strange that the actual planner of the event only showed up for 10 minutes but what did I know? After all, she did leave a person to coordinate the event on-site.
