What a difference a year makes! Last August, the job of a convention and tourism planner was described as an “extended tour in paradise” with “off hours and long weekends.” Last month, the job of a special events coordinator was No. 2 on CNN Money’s list of “stressful jobs that pay badly.”
Talking with planners on a regular basis, I haven’t found one that takes all their vacation days and almost without exception they love what they do.
So, I was wondering: If you were writing an article about your life as a meeting professional, how would you describe the job of a meeting/event planner?
