From my perspective, being an apprentice is a great step in the right direction. It is a great learning tool to enhance planners to strengthen ideas and personalities. Textbooks can only bring you so far; while being an apprentice you can think of it as a “real world simulator” that will give participants real world situations to strengthen your experience.
In my opinion, my apprenticeship has exposed me to many different characteristics of event planning. Normally my background in event planning revolves around wedding planning; however as an apprentice I have been able to witness and experience positive exposure to expand my knowledge in other areas of event planning. I believe that my apprenticeship has and will be a positive step in the right direction to bring me closer to my goals.
