Event Production Internship
Please note: this is an event *production* internship — not an event *planning* internship. Though this internship will be rich in contact with the special events industry, including some event planning, this internship is not focused solely in event planning. This internship would be great experience for a budding event planner and impressive on a resume, particularly when paired with a glowing letter of recommendation from DJ AJ9. However — it is not an event *planning* internship.
Stipend (PAID Internship) based on term and qualifications.
