Working in live events is a tad unpredictable at the moment since the 'pandemic that must not be named' but we promise it isn’t as futile as you might think right now!
When you think of what roles are available in the entertainment management sector, what comes to mind? Usually you'll associate roles based around live music festivals and stage production management to the entertainment industry, but that's just scratching the surface. Not only are these roles diverse in nature, there's also room to pursue a career as a Content Creator, Media Publisher, Technical Director, Social Media Strategist, Distributor and Co-Ordinator for any industry.
One of the most unappreciated job roles that come to mind is that of Entrepreneur. You've seen about 10% of your Instagram friends throw Entrepreneur in their bio a job title (or personality trait), but there's much more merit to the title than meets the eye.
As an Entrepreneur, students develop the skills to build their own business from idea creation to business fruition. Think starting your own record label, not-for-profit or events company, creating or managing a streaming platform, running a livestream event series or business expo experience, there's endless opportunities.
So, you know that you want to work in the entertainment industry and you also know you want to be highly employable, generate a good income and have the capabilities to run your own business as a freelancer. The question is, how do you go about putting your ambition into practice?
