Event Organizer of The Week - Week 1

This week, I am very stress out from my full time job as a Software Engineer. I had tons of tickets to resolve. However, I still managed to contribute some times to this community.

Beginning of this week, I promise myself to find at least 1 event organizer for AsiaPartTime. Why event organizer? They are the main source of part time jobs. They need a lot of part timers for their events. Do you guys know, Malaysia is an Event Country. We have events whole year around. Here is a simple formula:

more events = more jobs = Need a place to find Part Timer = AsiaPartTime

This week, I managed to call up Crystal Edge. They are one of the main event organizer for most of the IT events around us. As I know, the coming big event is Microsoft TechEd. I managed to convince their HR to use our community to source for part timer. Thanks for their support and they posted their first job with us smile_regular.

I did some statistic analysis on the database, 37% of the members are interested on Events Assistants Jobs. I would say it is a one of the dream part time job for us. Why? As a event assistant, your job is relax and easy. Your job scope is like register visitors, direct the visitors to the right conference room, arrange the refreshments, give leaflet/brochure, etc…

Anyway, this is my observation from all the events I attended before. It may be wrong. If you think it is not an easy job, please tell us more. We would like to know how is the REAL life of an event assistant.

I have never taken the post as an event coordinator before but as a helper for an international opthamologist meet at sunway a few years back, it is not a easy job at all, we have to make sure everything goes smoothly as planned and following the timeline. Eg. Registering 500 over opthamologist and searching for each optamologist’s name on envelopes which contains info and notes on variety of symposium and plenary that they have signed up to be given to them in duration of 3 hours. Besides that, if there is some technical problem arises during the conference, it has to be solved as soon as possible to keep the guest happy. If complaint arises, that wil be the time the event coordinator will have a headache and perhaps a miracle. i hope the info above helped to understand life as an event coordinator.
