I have been thinking about launching an "Event"ern program for a few years. We get bombarded with applications looking for experience in the Wedding Industry and I'd like to think that we have something to offer a possible burgeoning event planner. Also and perhaps more important, this industry is not for everyone and having an opportunity to test it out seems like a good idea. Many companies divide up the internship into just events or just business or just marketing but since we don't outsource any of that here at Esq.Events, I am planning on rolling it all into one big Eventern position not for the faint of heart. This internship will provide a very indepth and hands on experience in the wedding and event industry.
The Eventern should be a forward thinking, reliable and creative individual with strong leadership skills to perform the following:
-assists with Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest
-creates and updates media lists
-creates vendor lists; researches specific vendors for the event
-helps at events
-prospects new vendors by contacting ideal candidates
-performs research projects
-compiles research on competition and industry trends
-maintains good client and staff relationships through sending thank-you cards and gifts etc
-assists Owner on as-needed basis for various other tasks and projects
Ideally located in Boston (for event purposes), but rest of tasks will be done through working remotely.
You must be enrolled in a undergraduate or graduate degree program in order to qualify for this unpaid internship. Important to note: this is a training opportunity and no eventern will be used in lieu of additional wedding coordinators or assistants.
