Looking for 2011 Interns!

We are looking for interns for 2011!  Our interns will learn hands on about the day to day operations of a boutique wedding and event planning firm. You will assist with the planning and coordination of our 2011 weddings and events including a large scale charity event in March as well as other charity work throughout the year. You will help to maintain and update our website as well as contribute content to our blog.  You’ll also learn how we use social media to connect with our clients and other event professionals.

Interested candidates should be hard working and creative with a willingness and desire to learn. We are looking for self starters who work well with limited direction. You should have strong writing and communication skills and be extremely personable.  Previous event industry experience is not required but a fantastic attitude is! We would prefer college Juniors or Seniors who will graduate in December 2011 but will consider any qualified applicant for the position.  Since wedding season is primarily summer/fall – you should be planning to be in Columbus for the summer.

Proficiency in MS Office is required and Photoshop is a plus. We will train on other programs including our floor plan software and WordPress. You should also have the ability to work remotely via virtual office.

Weekly office hours will be required however, as this is an extended internship running from January through at least October, the number of hours per week is flexible and as mentioned, some may be done via remote office. Some evenings and weekends will be required as needed for events.

Still interested?  Please send resumes and cover letters in PDF form to interns@emilieduncan.com.  Application deadline is January 7, 2011 and qualified applicants will be contacted for interviews in mid-January.
