Management consultants work for firms that advise other companies how to run their businesses more efficiently. Most don’t have offices of their own; they work at the client’s site, which could be across town or across the globe. Life as a consultant is rarely boring — you are constantly meeting and interacting with new people, seeing new places and then moving on to the next job.
Event managers plan and stage large corporate events for their own companies, or they work for management companies that contract with larger firms to organize their meetings or events. Since everyone loves a party, event management is a feel-good position with a lot of fringe benefits, like hotel room upgrades, schmooze fests with bands or entertainers, food tastings, high-profile party invites, etc. Very demanding due to the amount of time and attention dedicated to each event. Be careful with the drinks and food.
A sales rep for a large manufacturing company based in Switzerland could have a territory as large as Europe, the Middle East and Africa, requiring frequent air travel as far away as Dubai, Durban or Dublin. The upside of these sales jobs is that reps typically have budgets to entertain clients, so much of your time on the road is spent wining and dining at high-end spots. On the downside, sales jobs usually come with plenty of pressure to perform by filling quotas, which can be stressful.
