Tracking Down 'Front Office' Employees

32 posts in this topic

Congrats to you.  What a wonderful opportunity...and you made it happen.  A nice career in front of you. Bet you will be in the NFL office someday.

 

Thanks LP! I am hoping to be in the Panther's front office one day... I guess time will tell how it all plays out.

can you implement this idea of mine for both security and moving crowds quickly?

 

have muliple kiosks set up outside the stadium, anytime before the game you can to the kiosk, security/event staff do what they are supposed to do to check you out and you get a bracelet thats is specific to that game only.

 

the main gate entrances now flow more quickly because so many folks would get pre screened if you will and it would reduce the bottleneck at all main entry points.

 

just an idea.

I will see what I can do pstall... that actually sounds like a great idea and definitely something I will bring up to my supervisors when I get into the office. I haven't yet had a full day on the job so right now my familiarity with their system is pretty minimal and I haven't learned much.

 

As the summer rolls on and I help better security and venue operations I will let you know how things are playing out. I was thinking of making a thread in the main Panther's forum to get some fan perspective on some things they would like done better in this regard. Part of the problem, at least at Gillette Stadium on gamedays, is they are usually understaffed by about 50-75 security members and are spread pretty thin across the stadium. My supervisor also mentioned how the staff is constantly turning over because employees think when they get the job that they will be seeing many of the games and able to watch. Once they discover that they are ticket takers, front gate security guards, etc. they tend to quit their job and thus the supervisors have to train all new employees over again and there isn't much continuity.

Look into the Masters of Homeland Security Program and San Diego State. Excellent and experienced staff with massive networking opportunities. Nearly everyone in the program is already involved and employed in the homeland security field in one way or another and the professors are great sources of knowledge and all have connections of their own. It is one of just a couple homeland security programs in the country and I believe it is unparalleled. The staff they have assembled is legit and it is very close to the Mexican border which makes for a good field study experience if you opt to go that route. Just google the program and check out their website for yourself.

I'll definitely look into it. Is it just the internal security program that is good, or is the international program good too?

 

I'm currently a geography & peace, war, and defense (essentially international relations) double major at UNC right now. I was thinking of going up to DC after finishing my undergrad work, because I feel like the profs would definitely be able to help me find legit internships in DC. I have dreams of working for a certain intelligence agency that may or may not be centralized.
