Whenever someone asks me what I want to do after I graduate I always give the same answer, “I have no idea, I’m hoping a job finds me.” Well, after working with Fun Academy Motion Pictures as an intern for four months, a job found me. I was offered a position as the company’s Group Sales Coordinator! Of course, I accepted the offer — I would have been crazy not to. I can not believe how lucky I am to have been offered this position. During my months as an intern I made it a point to make myself an integral part of the team through whatever means necessary. I worked with members of each department running reports, putting together welcome packages, taking notes and presenting during big meetings, participating on sales calls, and much more so I could learn every part of the business. Evidently my hard work paid off because I am now an official member of the Fun Academy Motion Pictures team.
As a Group Sales Coordinator, I am responsible for coordinating group events at the theater for our film Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero. When a group decides they want to see our movie, they fill out a group request form on our website and I work with their selected theater to book a showing for them. Because it’s the end of the school year, I am currently helping to coordinate a lot of elementary and middle school field trips. Aside from field trips, I also help to schedule events for special interest groups (animal shelters, military families, etc.), birthday parties, history buffs and general group audiences. I’m not sure what my job will look like after Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero is out of theaters but I’m excited to find out.
