Event Planning Jobs

Event planning jobs are fun. While much of your time may be spent at a desk using your phone and computer to make arrangements, you spend just as much time traveling to event sites and collaborating with vendors and clients in person.

Typically the work starts with a client discussion to define the scope of the event. You'll solicit bids from venues and service providers such as florists, photographers, caterers, speakers and/or entertainers amongst the list of responsibilities.
