It’s that time of year again—wedding season is around the corner and Elite Events is accepting applications for interns (Event Assistants) to assist us during our 2011 wedding season.
What You’ll Do :: Event Assistants will assist with all day-of wedding tasks including: setting up decor at ceremony and reception sites, assisting vendors with deliveries (ie. cake, flowers, linens, rentals), assisting with ceremony management, assisting vendors as needed throughout the day, ensuring time lines are being followed, trouble shooting problems that arise, communicating with vendors & bridal parties, ensuring accuracy of layouts, and much more. Event Assistants are always working alongside an experienced Event Planner or Coordinator who is there to direct & teach you!
Who We’re Looking For :: We are seeking junior & senior level students pursuing a degree in a related field (public relations, communications, hospitality & tourism, design, etc.), who are excited about learning the ins-and-outs of event planning, work well with a team, and exhibit a high level of responsibility. Weddings can be a stressful and emotionally charged time for a bride & groom and their families—the ideal candidate is friendly, enthusiastic, self motivating, calm under pressure, and a great communicator! Most of our events are located in the Toledo area, however some of our events have us traveling out of state and will require overnight stays. You must be able to travel to Toledo and destination weddings for events on weekends. For events out of state and over 90 miles in distance, overnight accommodations will be paid for.
What You’ll Get :: This is an unpaid internship and must apply towards college credit. You will walk away from this internship with hands-on experience in event planning & execution unlike anything you can learn in a classroom. This internship puts you in the action, working with real clients, professional vendors and beautiful locations throughout Northwest Ohio.
When You’ll Work :: Weddings are scheduled primarily on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Interns will be scheduled to work for a 16-18 week period (approximately June 1-Oct 30) and will assist with 8-10 events. We are happy to take schedules into consideration if given proper notice at start of season. Interns will also be assigned “pre-event” tasks each week, which can often be completed online from home.
How to Apply :: If you’re interested in joining the Elite Event Design Team for our 2011 season, please email your cover letter and resume (.pdf format, please) to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be accepting applications through March 28th and will be conducting interviews in early April! If you have additional questions, please email
