Event Management is one of the fastest growing industries all over the world. From global events like the St. Patrick’s Festival to sports weekends, food festivals, conferences, concerts and public celebrations, event management has evolved into big business; and event managers are the ones overseeing and arranging all aspects of the events. Sounds good, right?
However, if you are still confused whether event management is the right career choice for you, here are some reasons that will help you to take an informed decision.
Most of us have seen our parents get into government jobs or join the “family business”. Very few of us have parents who are into fields that are not tagged as cliché. Event management offers you a very different career altogether. It is unique and quite sought after these days.
Believe us when we say this, very few jobs can provide you with the kind of thrill and adrenaline rush that event management promises (unless you train people into bungee jumping!). The planning, backup plans, resources, Oh! We could go on and on.
Find us a field that offers more creativity than event management and we will write an article about you. Whether it is planning a wedding or a one-year-old birthday party, creativity is the key here, and it’s in tons.
There are hardly any jobs that offer you the scope for traveling as much as event management does. To learn sitting before a computer is one thing and to actually go out and travel is another. Nothing can teach you what traveling can.
EXPOSURE TO VARIOUS CULTURES
Say you took up weddings as a specialty after the course; do you realize the magnitude and variety of culture our country hosts? You will have the opportunity to not only explore but also know most of these cultures and traditions.
IT MAKES YOU INDEPENDENT
Most people now do not prefer to work under somebody. Event management opens the doors to the world of business like never before. During the course of your internship, if you manage to make the right contact or understand how events are handled in the right way, then you can start your own business very soon.
Event management introduces you to the world of glamour very smoothly. Whether it be modeling or acting, one definitely stands a chance to bag a role after this course. Check the profiles of most of the television actors and ad models; they all started their careers with event management. More so, if you are really good at what you do, you stand a chance to get placed for management at the country’s best reality shows.
IT NEVER RUNS OUT OF BUSINESS
No matter what happens people will get married, children will celebrate their birthdays, corporate bodies will organize annual meetings and functions, reality shows will always air on television and people will go to live concerts. In short, you will always be employed.
FREELANCING WITH A DIFFERENCE
Why do we say this? Even if you are a freelancer, the variety that event management can provide you in terms of training and management; is rarely found in other fields. Say you assist in a wedding and don’t enjoy it much, you could still try corporate events, parties, conferences etc and see what excites you and you can do all this while making money with the project at hand. Isn’t it awesome?
