Hey, friends! As you may know, I have a team of sparkle-laden awesomeness that helps keep the KOWE ship up and running. And to help give back and get some extra help, I LOVE having interns! You may remember a post from earlier this year from our intern, Sarah! We've had a few interns over the years and I've had such great experiences with them–if you know anyone looking, please share this information with them!
Believe it or not, it’s not all fun and games around here! We work (we work hard) and, as an intern, you will have to do the “not-so-fun stuff” like organizing, filing, making calls,and shopping. Our goal for any intern is to provide real-life work experience and as many learning opportunities as possible. You will gain valuable experience and learn if this is the field for you.
Description of Duties:
We're seeking an intern(s) to support KOWE staff in all areas of design, planning, and coordinating events, especially weddings. Intern will be involved in researching and networking alongside the owner/lead event planner. Intern may also be asked to accompany lead planner on any events during internship period to assist with the set up, tear down, and execution of any weddings or events, as needed. Intern would also assist head planner with day-to-day office duties which includes, but is not limited to: communications (clients and vendors); contract review; database entry; day-of wedding assistance; venue / site visits; client meetings, etc. Hours will vary, but a committment of 15-20 hours per week is required.
First and foremost, the ideal candidate will have a passion for weddings with a fun and outgoing perspective. Strong organizational skills, an ability to accept and handle responsbilities in a mature fashion, excellent communication / inter-personal skills, and basic computer skills (MS Office, social media) are a must. Some event planning experience is preferred, but not required.
This is an UNPAID position. It is best suited for someone working towards a college degree and who will receive credit for the hours or for someone wanting to break into the wedding/event field.
I said it once, but I'll say it again, the ideal candidate MUST be fun, energetic, organized, detail oriented, creative and patient. If this is not you- please look into other intern opportunities.
You must have reliable transportation.
You must have some availability on weekends (specific dates TBD).
- You must sparkle.
Yay! Please send a cover letter and resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org and please put “Fall 2013 Internship (and your name)” in the subject line!
