Internship description

Interns accepted into the program will learn the in’s and out’s of planning an event from Pre-Event to Post-Event. Interns will be required to think on their feet, exhibit time management and organization skills as well as meet deadlines. Our interns are taught how to research hotels, create proposals and RFP’s, how to create and manage timelines and agendas, build online registrations and manage databases. A few additional tasks will include: A/V selection, speaker contracting, room diagrams, transportation contracting, budgeting and other general office work. At the halfway point of the internship, students will begin to plan their own incentive trip from start to finish with assistance as needed. This is a great item to add to a personal portfolio and helps to implement what students have learned in a real life scenario. Please keep in mind, this is NOT a full list of projects/tasks.
