Level 3 Business student Ryan Griffin undertook his work experience at the Harrogate Flower Show, meeting and greeting VIP guests.
During Ryan’s phone interview, he used his previous experience working at functions in his part time job at historical Masonic Hall to his advantage, and gained the position.
Ryan is contemplating entering the event industry in the future.
“I’m trying to decide between event management and accountancy… I know they’re very different so I have a big decision to make! It’s good to be able to try out different work experience whilst at College though, to give me a better idea of what I’ll enjoy.” – Ryan Griffin.
All students now need to complete 30 hours unpaid work experience as part of their course. Ryan’s work experience lasted the three day weekend of the Flower Show at the Yorkshire Showground and has been invited back to assist with future events.
