2. The Events Industry is Your Oyster
Don’t want to be an events manager or event coordinator, don’t worry, you can still be involved in this amazing industry!
Whether you have a head for financials and want to go into budget development and be a financial controller, or like to be more hands on and want to go into set-up and event design, there is a role in this industry to suit each and every individual’s unique talents and preferences.
Travel is part and parcel of this industry – whether it means travelling locally, nationally, or internationally will depend on the industry sector you get into and your individual clients but travel is a given.
From site visits to coordination meetings to planning and being flown in to manage and coordinate destination events, if you’d love to see even a small part of the world while being paid to do it, the events industry is definitely an industry you should consider breaking into!
4. The Work is Rewarding
How many working professionals in other industries get to see a project through from inception to final execution?
Most industries rely on compartmentalizing structures and those who work on projects rarely get to see them through from beginning to end as they come in to complete their task before having to hand off the project again to the next person in the metaphorical production line.
When you work in the events industry, that doesn’t need to be the case, and you can’t underestimate the unique rewarding feeling of being able to see a project through from brainstorming to the finish line.
5. Everyday is Different
An event management career is many things, but it’s never boring!
Each and every project, and each and every day, will bring with it unique challenges, new people and new places you will need to navigate.
Not a career for the faint of heart, a career in the events industry is uniquely rewarding especially to those of us who love change, and thrive on variety in the workplace.
