It’s tough to be a coordinator nowadays, and more and more of them are losing confidence in their own profession.

While the amount of people majoring in courses preparing people for a job as a coordinator isn’t necessarily dropping, fewer and fewer people are applying to become coordinators in the first place and the workforce itself is looking grim.

With so many coordinators no longer sticking around, this begs the question:

What are they all doing now?

We were curious, so we looked through the resumes of former coordinators to see what kind of jobs they were moving into after leaving the field. There were thousands of answers, so we made the cutoff at the top 100 jobs.

The full list of those jobs can be found below.

Here’s a quick look at the top ten most common jobs for former coordinators:

  1. Administrative Assistant
  2. Customer Service Representative
  3. Teacher
  4. Office Manager
  5. Internship
  6. Manager
  7. Sales Associate
  8. Project Manager
  9. Operations Manager
  10. Assistant Manager

These are all good jobs, all of them either utilizing some skill that a coordinator would have or being a stepping stone to a different career.

Here’s the thing about these jobs though — as a list, they’re kind of boring as hell. They’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect a lot of former coordinators to do.

But given that there are some very surprising and interesting items on this list, we’ve decided to highlight a few of those instead.

Here are some of the most interesting jobs of former coordinators:

  1. Program Director
  2. Assistant Director
  3. Executive Director
  4. Adjunct Instructor
  5. Service Manager
  6. Adjunct Professor
  7. Recruiter
  8. Counselor
  9. Buyer
  10. Principal

Some of these items are admittedly more attractive than one another as far as actually working the job goes, but one way or another, you’ve got to admit they’re eye-catching.

How We Determined the Most Common Jobs of Former Coordinators

Using resume information from our database of over 7 million resumes, we looked at all resumes that listed coordinator under their work history. Then we looked at which jobs showed up on their work histories following their stints as a coordinator, sorting them by their most frequent.

That’s how we made the initial ranked list.

To make our list of most interesting jobs, we looked through the ranked list to see if any positions:

  • Showed up in fewer than 1% of all new jobs
  • And, were not part of the 100 most common jobs in our database

That’s all for how we did it — below you’ll find the full ranked list of the most common jobs of former coordinators.
