Working the Olympic Games
The Olympic Games are one of the largest sporting events and displays of athleticism in the world. Athletes work day in and day out for years in order to earn a chance to compete in the largest sporting event to take place on a world stage.
The Olympic Games is consistently a favorite among fans and not only garners some of the largest live audiences ever recorded but is also watched by people all over the world over the course of the competition. For full information including dates and locations for upcoming games check out each of our event profiles on the Youth, Winter, Summer and Paralympic games.
As you might imagine an event like the Olympics takes some serious planning and execution in order for it to be a success. No single group of people or businesses could possibly arrange the organization necessary for an event such as the summer Olympics, which takes years to arrange. Beginning ceremonies, set-up, construction, travel accommodations, broadcasting, scheduling and infinitely more factors all go into the set up, preparation and execution of the Olympic Games.
Keep in mind that with such an enormous amount of planning that goes into an event such as the Olympics, that it is impossible to list every possible job related to the event. Since host city planners and event organization companies spend years preparing for the event there is a constant stream of jobs and volunteers needed. The opportunities listed on the following pages are meant to act as a guideline for the types of jobs being listed now and are suggested ways to get involved in working for the Olympics.
