Informative internship that peaked my interest in the events industry.
Pros: i learned a lot about the industry, was able to hone in on my skills and talents.
Cons: short internship, wanted to be more hands on with the actule events, hard to work for a non-profit company; budgets are tight.
I had a 20 hour a week internship in the Event/Fund Development office for a non-profit organization. I help with marketing and advertisement, making invitations. I made public speeches in the local community informing residents about events. planned and exceeded fund raisers. Attended fund development meetings.
