The Coolest Experiential Jobs Hiring Right Now
We are pleased to announce that IRL events are back, baby. With that being said, 2023 is shaping up to be an eventful year filled with great opportunities – for everyone. Don’t believe us? Despite complaining about the cost of everything from a tank of gas to a dozen eggs, consumers are still coughing up thousands of dollars for Taylor Swift tickets and revenge travel. During the brutal Covid years, we missed being with our people (IRL) and changing up our scenery. (And if you can travel to a far off place AND find your people, even better! Like, perhaps in a volcano.)
The experiential industry is the place to be and we predict that it could use your help in executing some of the coolest events and experiences yet.
With an invigorated desire to be together, creativity and tech that bloomed during the pandemic, and brands realizing that events are THE most effective way to get people to engage with their products / messaging — the experiential industry continues to hire new talent. And create brand new roles. From internships and entry-level opps for our beloved tech-savvy Gen Z brethren to C-suite and consulting gigs for the OGs — here we are, highlighting the best XP job postings from across the internet.
