Best Career Blunder

Working as an Usher at the Football Stadium

Biggest Challenge

The biggest challenge working as an Usher was to stand for long hours. It is a challenge to stand patiently without much movement with about 40,000 people around.

Lessons Learned

It is quite easy to do well as an Usher if you get engaged in friendly conversations with people who have come to watch the game. Doing a little homework about the teams playing and players involved can turn into enthusiastic conversations which helps making life easier.
