The deadline is coming up soon for the 2012 Special Event Management Team, which will provide students the opportunity to gain work experience at one of the world’s top resorts. All students are invited to apply online by Oct. 12, with successful applicants registering for a specific special event management course offered in spring 2012. The Department of Hospitality, Recreation and Tourism Management partners with Pebble Beach Resorts to assist with the annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament. Students showcase their skills while managing teams in skybox hospitalities, chalet hospitalities, and on-course food or beverage operations. The program has helped many secure employment in related fields, including recent graduate Jason Whitcomb, who began a three-year paid internship with the National Football League this fall.
