Event Coordinator Reviews

What is it like working as an Event Coordinator?

Event Coordinator in Tampa:
"I love it!"
Pros: The perks of working for a NHL hockey team are plentiful. I also enjoy the diversity of event I get to plan and work. It keeps me on my toes.
Cons: The long hours and lack of sleep during the busy season.

Event Coordinator in Chicago:
"Be Prepared to Do Anything and Everything."
Pros: Working at a university has great networking opportunities, especially if you're interested in learning more about higher ed and student affairs. So being able to be a face to a local premiere university is a great position. I also like that I am able to assist in facilitating events that bring together people who want to give local students opportunities to learn more college.
Cons: I often do things that I am not clear about or know a lot about. My manager and all those that I answer to haven't clearly trained me on a lot of things and have high expectations which makes my job very frustrating at times. Also, because it is only part-time, financially it can be difficult to be so available when I literally can't afford to be because my commute is so long and costly.

Event Coordinator in Melbourne:
"Global Awareness."
Pros: Working with students from around the world.
Cons: Stress level at certain times of the year.

Event Coordinator in Atascadero:
"Work Flexibility."
Pros: I love basically everything about my job. It is amazing. I am able to move around and learn and grow.
Cons: Just my pay.
