Career Advice on How to Become an Elvis Minister

Yes, you did indeed read that job description correctly.  Anyone who is in the process of career planning or a job search knows that keeping an open mind is key.  So, how about working as an Elvis Minister?  If you like religion, like the idea of marrying people, and you find the notion of dressing like possibly the single most overrated pop-icon in history intriguing, then maybe you have found your career path.

Career Facts:

If tacky is what you like (and it better be) then working as an Elvis Minister should be just up your alley.  Most of these modern day de-facto clowns work in the most beautiful city in the world, Las Vegas.  For those of you who have been to Las Vegas, there is no need to point out the obvious sarcasm. For the rest of you, that was sarcasm.  Las Vegas is the kind of place where one can get married by a person dressed up as “The King.”  That sure does sound like a lot of fun doesn’t it?

You might naturally be wondering how one lands such an awesome job.  First, you need to tackle becoming an ordained minister.  After that you need to get some sort of Elvis act down.  Now this act can be very, very bad and it simply won’t matter.  The exceeding strange thing is that any Elvis impersonation no matter how poorly executed, somehow still seems accurate.  On this point you have nothing to worry about.  If you do feel that this is your calling, you probably will have to live in Las Vegas, but that’s just the way it is.

Career Opportunities and Job Outlook- Unknown:

Will there always be a perplexingly strange need for the Elvis minister?  That is a tough call.  For the foreseeable future the Elvis minister is likely to stay with us.

A Day in The Life:

If your idea of a good time is marrying off all sorts of misguided souls by a minister who is dressed in a variety of horribly designed ridiculous rhinestone infused white jumpsuits, then Vegas has you covered.  What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, except for your photographically documented shame that is.

Average Salary:

Those employed by a Las Vegas style wedding chapel should expect to earn an hourly wage.

Career Training and Qualifications:

Elvis minister usually have two skills; one is the ability to do a horrible Elvis impersonation and the other is the legal ability to marry people.
