In September last year, Rebecca Dodds-Gorman (Bachelor of Business/ Bachelor of International Tourism and Hotel Management) was offered the internship position of Information Booth Intern for the Pan Pacific Masters Games organised by Events Management Queensland (EMQ). Upon successful completion of the internship, the experience led her to an employment opportunity within the organisation. She was recently employed and is now working at the organisation as the Volunteer Coordinator for the Gold Coast Marathon, an event also organised by EMQ.

R.Dobbs.Gorman“I chose to complete an internship with EMQ as I wanted to continue to build upon my experience in field.

The sport event industry is extremely competitive, and I know that to stand out as a potential employee I needed to prove that my skills and knowledge would benefit the company that I wanted to work for. To do that I needed to get practical, hands on experience in addition to my degree qualifications.

Undertaking internships or work experience is a great way to do that. I like to say that it is definitely who you know, but you’ve also got to back it up with what you know; and that comes from theoretical and practical application of skills and knowledge.”
