A Day In The Life Of A New York Ticket Broker

In less then two months I will celebrate six years at Applause.Prior to coming here I was the Customer Service Supervisor at who is one of our many competitors in the ticket industry. After the sudden resignation of our CEO the company decided to downside and my position was deemed no longer necessary. So after two years of loyal service I was without a job. What to do next? Well find a job as soon as possible of course. I knew I loved selling tickets so I set out to find a job that would best suit my interests. So I set out to do just that. Now to be honest I've never had much luck finding a job in the classifieds. So I decided to do the next best thing. The phone book.

Now before you think I spent the next twelve hours calling employment agencies all over the city looking for I job I didn't. I skipped to the letter T under ticket brokers and began my search. To say that I was surprised at how many ticket sellers were in New York is an understatement. So there I was. Resumes in hand ready to begin my search. Since I had never heard of any of these companies I figured the most logical thing would be to start at the top of the alphabet and see what happens. Well guess who was at the top of the list? That's right. Applause Theatre Service. I dropped off my resume on a Monday morning and by the weekend I was at my new place of employment. So that's my story.

Now believe it or not today's blog was not just about me and my search to find a job. I have one and am very thankful for that. The point I am trying to make is that Applause is just one of hundreds of ticket brokers in this city. I encourage you to shop around before finding the one that suits you. There will aways be someone out there that claims to have better prices or better tickets then the next guy. That's how they stay in business. All I can say is that if you buy from us or one of our competitors take your time. Find the one that works best for you and gives you the kind of service that will make you happy. It's your money after all. Good luck with your search.
