United Nations International School Career Panel Presentation 2010

  1. 1. Presentation to United Nations International School Tutorial III Students<br />Presented by Elizabeth Ngonzi<br />Founder and President<br />Amazing Taste, LLC<br />
  2. 2. Representative Projects<br />Managed event production, vendor and volunteer procurement, and sponsor development for the United Nations Secretary-General's campaign launch: UNITE to End Violence Against Women for 400 attendees. <br />Provided planning and production services for the campaign's 200-guest VIP kick-off reception hosted by the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General.<br />
  3. 3. Representative Projects<br />Created the strategic plan for, managed and produced the Eleventh Annual Pink Tie Ball® (and related kick-off events) of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, North Jersey Affiliate held at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ. <br />Speakers for the 1,100-guest gala (raised $1.1 million) included New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine. <br />Integrated sustainability elements into the gala including a cherry blossom tree-planting program recognizing sponsors' contributions, organic menus, recycled printed materials and "green" hospitality bag items. <br />Provided an online presence for the gala through an event Website and an online auction/volunteer recruitment site.<br />
  4. 4. Career Advice – UNIS<br />Complete your UNIS career on a high note…just because you’ve been accepted into a university, doesn’t mean you stop studying at UNIS<br />Don’t try to apply to every school…just like in marketing…you have to focus on a few targets and work to convince them that you’re the best<br />Be careful about what you post online -- Facebook is not as private as you think and everything on the Internet is (for the most part) permanent<br />Seek out a UNIS alum as a mentor…we’ve been in your shoes before and can help you get through this period<br />
  5. 5. Career Advice – Undergraduate Experience<br />Make the most of the Undergraduate Experience:<br />Although it’s important to figure out your major by your second year…don’t forget to take as many classes outside of your chosen field to round out your education<br />Take the time to meet and get to know a variety of people…you’ll need them in the future<br />Make the most of your vacations by either traveling, volunteering your time and/or interning<br />Try to make yourself memorable…don’t just blend in with the furniture<br />College life is not only about studying all the time…have lots of fun!<br />
  6. 6. Career Advice – Your First Professional Job<br />If you’re not certain about what you want to do with your career…find a job that will expose you to many different areas (e.g., management consulting, rotational job, temping)<br />Always remain memorable -- go above and beyond the job description and make yourself indispensable<br />Make certain to make time for networking and establish new or maintain existing relationships<br />
  7. 7. Career Advice – General<br />Always remember that you shouldn’t always be focused on what others can do for you…sometimes it’s more important to figure out how you can be of value to them first.<br />Your reputation is everything (including your brand)…protect it very carefully and be selective about those you allow to associate with you<br />This is your life…make the best of it and always remember to “keep the end in mind” in all that you do!<br />
  8. 8. THANK YOU…QUESTIONS?Elizabeth NgonziFounder / PresidentAmazing-Taste.com973-327-4225Ngonzi@Amazing-Taste.comwww.Amazing-Taste.com<br />
