Events team are going strong

Melbourne birthday venuesSo happy to be hired as part of an events team! Gosh, I’m fresh out of uni as well. I didn’t even have to apply: I was drafted. Seriously? Even the tutors were pretty disparaging about our chances at finding a job. I handed in my final assessment and sort of sighed, because I knew I’d be in for a long job hunt without anything great at the end because it’s an industry where you work your way up.

Never mind any of that! I have to pinch myself every morning, but here I am, fresh from my very first day and everyone seems so lovely. Basically, our company has monthly gatherings, just socials where people can chill and let off steam. My job is to scout out Melbourne’s party venues and find something fresh every month. I guess Melbourne must have a few of them, but it’s a bit weird that we have to find a new one every month. Maybe we’re looking for the absolute perfect fit, and we’ll stop there? Guess it depends on me doing my job well, because I have to constantly keep my ear to the ground for any hot places.

At least I’m the ‘new’ girl, so I guess the responsibility won’t be all mine from the get-go. I do have a few ideas for function venues, party rooms, all that business. I just did an events course, after all! You don’t do that for three years without picking up some contacts and industry knowledge, unless you’re really just phoning it in and you don’t care about your industry. A lot of people just pick events because it sounds easy, and ‘I like parties’. Nope, I was pretty serious! And now I have a serious job, so it looks like that one paid off. The only thing is that people don’t really talk about much here. They all want to talk about work all the time, and I don’t know anything about them as people. Maybe it’ll change, but for now I’m focusing on broadening my Melbourne birthday party venue knowledge. Can’t waste this opportunity…

Susan and her apps

app development courses in MelbourneSusan came round on the weekend and told me about her new plans to become a millionaire. She has come up with a new app that sets up farmers with produce distributors. It might sound like a good idea but it is just classic Susan. She always has these mad ideas that she thinks are really special but she gets bored of them before she dedicates any actual time to developing it. She has started looking at app design courses in Melbourne because she truly thinks this one will be different. I can assure you, it will not. Susan doesn’t even know anything about farming and now she wants to create the Tinder of the farming world. She went on one date with a farmer who was complaining about a lack of communication channels between growers and suppliers and she suddenly felt enlightened. The guy didn’t work out but she is now a serious app developer and a budding technological guru. Apparently the app development course will teach her everything from actually designing and building the app, to marketing it and releasing it. I guarantee Susan won’t even attend a single open day for an app development course but she will talk about it for approximately two months before barging in with another genius idea. A lot of my other friends ask why I still keep Susan around because all she ever does is talk about herself. If I am being honest, she has a certain energy that I enjoy, even if she is banging on about app courses and whatnot. At least she isn’t as boring as my other friends who only talk about divorces and broken kettles. The other annoying thing about Susan is her lack of awareness, I mean the woman genuinely believes she is the first person to think of a genius app idea.
