My dream job would be the Marketing and Events Manager in a casino. Can we just stop to appreciate what an amazing job that would be?
Being a marketing and events manager is great enough on its own – you basically get paid to organise parties and to socialise, and who wouldn’t want that? However, when you’re the marketing and events manager of a casino, everything becomes ten times more exciting. The best events are held in casinos. Depending on the quality of the casino, there is plenty of people willing to splash all of their cash, meaning most of the events are exclusive, luxurious parties full of celebrities and socialites. If that isn’t your idea of a dream work environment, I don’t know what is!
In addition to this, your job would never be boring! No more dull, repetitive 9-5’s sat on an uncomfortable chair behind a desk for the rest of your life. Being a marketing and events manager means attending meetings, viewing venues, planning parties- all of which is fun, fun, fun. Being a casino marketing and events manager generally means all of the events you plan are hosted at the casino, which means you don’t only get to plan them, but you get to attend them too, which is an added perk to the job.
Most marketing and events managers at the top of their game earn just shy of $100,000, which is a pretty juicy salary to receive for essentially just having a good time! (Sure, there’s more to it than that, but you know what I mean). However, the average wage for someone a little more mediocre is around the $80,000, which is still nothing to be sniffed at!
Let’s not forget another perk to being a marketing and events manager; mingling with all of the celebrities! Particularly in casinos you can expect to see the likes of Kim Kardashian and Scott Disick, Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Imagine being paid to hang out with those guys, having a drink or two and partying the night away in a luxury casino? It would be absolutely unreal.
Being a Marketing and Events Manager would be a kind of cool career to have anyway, and it’s probably what I’ll start out as if I’m lucky enough, but I’d eventually like to specialise in becoming one for casinos- purely for the bigger paycheck and the more glamorous events!
