Hospitality Recruitment

Actor needed for hospitality recruitment.

Full-time or part-time, flexible hours! 

 

Are you a polished and articulate actor who enjoys developing a character and working a script to make it your own? Are you looking for a great full-time OR part-time opportunity for 25 or so hours per week where you can make your own hours within business hours (9am to 6pm)?  Would you like to work with an organization that values your training, your work and your schedule as an artist? If so, we could have a great match!

 

Who we are: Gallo Business Media:

Gallo Business Media (GBM) is an award-winning, boutique business-to-business event organizer.  We offer a unique event model where buyers and sellers meet in pre-arranged meetings that focus on ways in which they can help each other.  It’s a unique model that our customers LOVE because of our theatrical approach, and as a result, they’re asking us to do more of them. 

 

Why actors / actresses?

The majority of us here at GBM have a theatrical or musical background, and we've hired a bunch of great talent from the Chicago Artist Resource board. We understand performance and delivery to an audience.  By far, the most successful people in our organization are those who can take a script, understand the objective and motivation behind it and then make it their own – including free range to change the script, as long as you’re delivering on its objective.  Then at an event, the rave reviews feel every bit as great as a curtain call! 

What We Are Looking For:

We’re seeking someone who is polished and articulate to help recruit participants to our Summits. Recruitment is done over the phone in a consultative manner.  We’ve found that to do well here, you should truly enjoy talking to interesting people about they do, how they do it, and how you can help them. There’s no money involved in their participation as we pay for all qualified participants to participate. Our guests are sincerely happy once they’ve participated in our Summits, and typically refer others for future events.  

We would also like for you to join us at our Summits. We travel four to five times per year, and always host our Summits at a fabulous domestic resort. This is not mandatory.

We find that the absolute joy in the execution or performance of our Summits is a similar rush as a stage performance. When we execute well, we’re on a high for days after one of our Summits!
