Event staffing is a great way to earn extra income and meet new people. You’ll also learn skills that will help you wherever you go. Here’s how event staffing can benefit your future:

Develop Soft Skills

There are various roles involved in running a successful event. But no matter what role you fill, you’ll learn useful soft skills. These are traits that make people enjoy working with you. They include good communication, teamwork, creativity, and many more. Hard skills involve the knowledge to do a specific job, like running a cash register. But soft skills mean you know how to work with people.

Time Management

Events run on a strict timeline. As a result, your supervisors will expect you to be where you need to be, when you need to be there. Beyond event staffing, time management keeps you from getting overwhelmed and is essential if you plan to work for yourself one day.


Events are unpredictable. And when issues arise, the best way you can serve your event crew is to be ready for anything. That kind of adaptability will serve you well down the road.

Critical Thinking

Your team lead can’t be everywhere at once. So when a problem needs to be solved, it’ll be up to you to analyze the situation and make an informed decision. That may intimidate some, but after doing it a few times, you’ll get a reputation as a take-charge employee.

Broaden Your Professional Network

We partner with Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB) to staff a wide variety of events. And we work in wonderful venues like Georgia World Congress Center, the Georgia International Convention Center, and Cobb Galleria.

These venues provide an exciting atmosphere. And they’re often a great opportunity to network with other staff and entrepreneurs attending the event. Going above and beyond on these occasions could be your calling card to future opportunities.

Some consider working events an easy way to earn extra income, but if you take it seriously and give it your best, you’ll earn the respect of those who can give you a favorable recommendation later on.

Perks of the Job

From festivals to industry mixers, you’ll go behind the scenes, make connections, and possibly discover a new career. Event staffing with Employ is flexible part-time work. Many people work around their current responsibilities. No matter your level of experience, we have a spot for you on our team.
