Hiring Fall Interns

Thursday, September 11, 2014
As an Elegant Affairs in intern, you will learn the ins and outs of wedding and event planning beginning with meeting with potential clients through the planning process until the completion of the event. Interns will research and prep for client meetings, put together inspiration boards, meet with new and existing vendors to create and strengthen relationships and prep for weddings and events. Another facet of the internship includes promoting Elegant Affairs to new and potential clients and vendors utilizing social networks.
 
This is an UNPAID internship. This internship is located in Washington state (we are located in Puyallup, 45 minutes south of Seattle) and you must provide your own transportation as we drive A LOT to and from meetings and events. You must be available Friday-Sundays for our events throughout our wedding season(s) and also have to be at least 18 years of age.
 
 
What the internship is:
... An invaluable look at the hard work that really goes into an event
... A great opportunity to learn from an award winning wedding planner
... Climbing, hanging, folding, arranging, setting up, fixing, running, rearranging anything and everything
 
 
What the internship isn't:
... like anything you've seen in the movies (ie. The Wedding Planner)
... Paid
... Permanent (internship will span early spring + summer/fall)
... Full-time (about 10-20 hours per week when we have events)
 
We definitely have more to chat about if you are:
... calm in the face of adversity
... fun, funny (we like to laugh...a lot)
... a good negotiator
... pumped to do physical labor (in heels or super cute flats)
... comfortable getting dirty (yes, we often find ourselves crawling on the floor)
... willing to learn lots of new skills (sewing anyone?)
... knowledgeable about colors, flowers
... have a good fashion sense (of course we have to look good)
... able to visualize and be creative without being directed
... keep up with the latest trends
... well organized
 
Here's what we want:
... No more than 50 word explanation why you want this internship. 

... A list of 10 random facts that will help me get to know you. Be creative, quirky, silly, whatever, just don't bore me. Personality is key people.
 
... A WEDDING Inspiration Board (must be in the form or a jpeg or PDF file). Make it fun, interesting and not something I've seen a thousand times. The only rule? Your inspiration board needs to include a wedding dress, bridesmaid dress, color swatch, bouquet and centerpiece.
 
Here's what we don't want:
Your resume. Your job experience. Unsolicited requests for paid positions. Phone calls.

This is an unpaid position from now until December.

Please e-mail intern@elegantaffairswa.com to apply!

Thanks for sharing the blog!! From my experience, I think hiring an event planner would be beneficial for wedding event planning. He can help you in finding affordable and cheap wedding venue. And he will do all the wedding arrangements in a proper way.
