Tough question to start with, blimey !!
I’ve always believed qualifications are a great way in, however, they’re not a necessity, and each agency will have their own thoughts on them.
My advice to people looking to get into the sector is think about what you’re good at, what do you enjoy doing and then target businesses that align with this.
Instead of just sending in your CV speculatively, create a personalised overview that explains how you would help them, how you would add value and why you’ve chosen their brand as a match for you.
Recruitment in the events industry is a noisy space, so you need to stand out creatively and intelligently from the start.
