Events planning, marketing and administrative work are my specialties. During my college days, I used to work for a startup company as a secretary. Since we have limited manpower, my function were not limited with filing papers, sending emails, answering phone calls and scheduling. I also do account management, creating quotation, purchasing duties and some accounting-related jobs.
After graduation, I applied as Operation Assistant. During my first three months, my job description revolves around paper works, sales report, outlet performance report, inventory management and answering inquiries from the outlet's personnel. On the forth month, marketing assistant was added to my role. Coordinating with different departments with regards to outlet opening, creating marketing paraphernalia, coordinating and ordering supplies from the suppliers, creating marketing plan and strategies, and managing a sub-brand were some of the tasks that were added to my job description.
My last post was an Events Planner from a well-known catering service in the Philippines. This position requires great organizational skills, resourcefulness, flexibility, creativity and a lot of patience. My day revolves in clients meeting, coordinating with other suppliers, coordinating with different departments, updating calendar of events, answering client's inquiries through email and phone, giving advice, creating contracts and a lot more.
Then during the afternoon which usually starts from two in the afternoon and ends around twelve midnight, I am out to monitor the event from ingress and sometimes up to egress. It is part of my job to make sure the contract were strictly followed. Also, I do the troubleshooting for any problem that may arise before, during or after the event.
