Parking Lot Party

A few days ago my work had a recruiting open house for accounting students all over Utah. I was put in charge of planning it. For the past few months my team and I have been searching for a band, caterers, equipment, planning games, making invites, and collecting RSVPs. It has been a TON of work and fortunately only a few hiccups. All the party planning paid off and the party was a success. We had a good number of students attend and plenty of good food. Always a good sign of a party. The theme for the party was a tailgating party, tis the season and everything. We asked Waffle Love and Burgers Supreme to cater. So yummy! We had multiple tailgating games in the parking lot to win prizes. We also had a really good musician, Jim Derrikson, come and play during the party. Josh was super sweet as usual and helped set up and clean up. He helps me with all the events I plan. We had a long day and I was at work for over 12 hours, but I’m so glad it turned out well. I took a few of pictures before the party really got started for my work’s social media and for this blog. 🙂

A funny situation with this party was this flyer. I made this flyer to give to the various schools and invite students. My brother is getting his accounting degree and there was a student in one of his classes who thought this was an actual ticket to the BYU vs. Utah game and thought the company I work for was the best company ever because of it. Haha. There were also students who thought it was a party to celebrate the BYU vs. Utah game the week before the party. And there were students who thought it was an actual ticket to come to the open house. Apparently, I was a little too creative. I could totally see where they were coming from but they did not read the flyer. What do you do? Some people at work mentioned maybe it could be an early way to screen people to see if we wanted to hire them. Attention to detail and everything. Anyways, this little flyer provided a lot of laughs. I’m glad the event is over! 🙂
