How to Become an Event Planner
Secrets for Getting Hired
From Employers, Recruiters, and Event Professionals
Learn the right way to prepare for a career in event planning
with advice from the professionals
Most people trying to break into the events industry go about it in entirely the wrong way; you can't just take an event planning course, graduate, and start applying for entry-level positions.
Unlike most professions, a career in event planning does not require any specific qualifications—and you can't even apply for event planning certification until you've acquired 2-3 years of professional employment. Instead, employers are looking for people with the right skills, personal qualities, and—about all else—experience.
In this industry, getting hired doesn't involve blindly sending out resumes to get experience; it's all about networking, contacts, and relationships.
This site, and the accompanying book, will teach you how to become an event planner—the right way; with advice from employers, recruiters, and event professionals.
