Emma Melter
Student at Bowling Green State University

Who are the most important people in your life? The most important people are my family and friends

Who do you work for and what is your role?  Firstly, I am a student at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) majoring in Tourism, Hospitality, and Event Management with a General Business Minor. I am also a Culinary Intern in the Teaching Kitchen at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) as well as a Catering Intern with the BGSU Catering. In the Teaching Kitchen, I help with prep work and clean up for classes in addition to assisting the chef/teacher who leads the class. For my practicum this semester, I am working in the sales office for BGSU Catering and assisting with front-of-the-house duties as needed.

What is the best thing about your job?  With catering, I enjoy seeing the preparation that goes into creating the menu as well as working with the client to create it. In the Teaching Kitchen, I love working with the chefs and dietician and watching them share their passion about food with everyone in class.

What are the 3 most important skills you use at work? Communication, teamwork, problem-solving

What one piece of advice would you give to someone beginning their career in the Meeting Industry?  Being open-minded and hardworking will help in a variety of situations both in and out of this industry. That being said, I am new to this industry and would greatly appreciate advice from anyone reading this!

What super-power would you love to have to help you do your job better? Teleportation would be my super-power. It would help me travel to places quicker, allowing me to meet with more people/have more time with clients before needing to be elsewhere.
