What Skills Do Today's Employers Look For?

The Event Leadership Institute conducted a survey and a series of video interviews with heads of in-house event departments, owners of event agencies, and other hiring professionals to identify the skills and personality traits they look for in new hires and where educators may be falling short in preparing them. The result is a 32-minute on-demand video class, Teaching Event Management: The Skills Today's Employers Look For. The content was initially presented at the ICHRIE (International Council on Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Education) annual conference by Howard Givner, Founder & CEO of the Event Leadership Institute, and Carol Krugman MEd, CMP, CMM (retired), Chair of the Department of Hospitality, Tourism & Events at the Metropolitan State University of Denver.
