Description

CitySocial is seeking a new Events Intern to join our growing company. As the Events Intern, you will be responsible for helping manage the CitySocial Event Operations in Raleigh and Charlotte.

CitySocial events are experiences created for anyone looking for something new and different in their social life. Everyone gets bored of going out to the same bars and restaurants with the same people. We understand that, and have shared that exact same frustration, which is why we created CitySocial.

Our mission at CitySocial is to add value to local markets by creating unique social experiences through events. Our events bring different groups of people who live in the same city together, in organic and comfortable settings to meet and have fun.

Our team carefully selects the best bars/restaurants to create the unique setting for a memorable event. We are committed to working with local businesses to get you the best deals on food and drink prices, cheaper than you can get on an ordinary night going downtown with your friends.

We craft together themes and concepts combining food, drink and entertainment all from your local community. We do this to offer you something different, and better than the usual. The same unique experiences we were unable to find ourselves.

Our goal is, and always will be, to add new value and variety to your everyday social experiences. We encourage you and your friends to give our events a try, and enjoy the CitySocial Experience.
