According to a recent survey by compensation data provider Salary.com, meeting/event planning is the fourth sexiest job in America. Firefighter was named the sexiest occupation, with 16 percent of the vote. That was followed by flight attendant (13 percent); chief executive officer (11 percent); and reporter, interior designer, and meeting/event planner (10 percent). A total of 5,000 people responded to the poll.
It turns out, you don't have to make a mint to be considered sexy. While CEOs earn a median salary of $611,067, most of the jobs on the list command less than six figures, including meeting planner. The median salary for meeting/event planners is $51,029, according to Salary.com. It just goes to show, it's not always about the money.
