I think this kind of job would be wonderful though, if you had the right skill set. You'd get to meet some really fantastic people, especially if you were coordinating events where people were giving talks or signing things or whatever.
My sister worked for a comic book convention every year with a kind of volunteer coordinator job and she loved it. She got to meet all kinds of celebrities, as well as talented artists and writers and so forth.
Plus she really enjoyed working with people who were passionate about something. I think that is probably the best part of any coordinator job description.
