If you have strong attention to detail, great social skills, and the ability to communicate well and plan ahead, working as an event planner may be a great job for you.
Event planners do much more than just plan parties. They help to make events memorable for individuals and help companies ensure they are creating the best impression for their brands by putting on great events. Working as an event planner can provide ample opportunities to earn a good living while developing a diverse array of skills necessary to ensure that client events are a great success.
If you think this job may be right for you, consider some of the key tasks you’ll be doing if you begin working as an event planner.
Assisting with the planning and execution of high-profile events.
This could include fundraisers, weddings, new product launches and more. Many of the events you will be planning are once-in-a-lifetime occasions, so it will be essential for you to understand the needs of those putting on the event so you can help them achieve their vision.
Event planners have developed techniques for drafting high-quality invitations and taking steps to make sure people RSVP so a head count can come in before a big event. You must be able to make your correspondence professional and keep track of key contacts.
Dealing with suppliers and vendors.
Most events require you to purchase or rent at least something from a supplier. This could include renting tents, plates and cutlery, or a host of other products necessary to ensure an event goes smoothly. Event planners can take care of the process of connecting with suppliers to get all the essential equipment in place.
