Corporate Events Manager

Odds of Getting In

The number of Corporate Event Manager jobs is growing—and fast. At a growth rate of around 45%, this career is exploding (not literally, there should be no explosions if events are handled properly) compared to the national average.

One reason may be that, as businesses go more and more global, there is a much bigger need for individuals to organize meetings to keep everyone abreast of industry trends and decisions. Whatever the reason, this kind of growth means that—if you've got the qualifications—there should be lots of available events to manage.
