Travel, Tourism, And HospitalityBookmark This
Stone Mountain, GA
DescriptionMy husband and I are multi-faceted entrepreneurs with many irons in the fire -- I am a Professional Organizer, life coach, writer, blogger, paid speaker, and travel photographer -- and my husband is a graphic artist and web designer. We always have a ton of interesting projects going on that would give an intern great work and life experience. You might be hesitant about working for a couple of solopreneurs – but considering recent economic trends and the state of employment in this country, its highly likely that some of you will end up working for yourselves at some point in your career. And even those who dont will be able to benefit from the experience we can offer. I have personally spent more than 14 years running my own companies. I devote a lot of time training both clients and colleagues on issues of organization, business administration, marketing, social networking, writing style, and process improvement. I challenge those who work with me and for me to find their passion, develop their talents, and take the steps necessary to achieve success in life – my students are given a broad education, filled with skills that will help them to be more effective and efficient in their future careers. Let me also say that I've had my fair share of pointless internships during my college days, and I want to make sure you get to work on meaningful projects – there will be no making of copies or fetching of coffee with me!
ResponsibilitiesI am a full-time RVer, travel writer, and photographer – last year, we went from Key West to Nova Scotia, and Im working on a narrative/photo book combo of our adventures (which I plan to publish next year) – the next book will cover our travels across the Southern U.S. I am currently seeking interns from the hospitality and tourism department whose responsibilities would include:
- researching attractions, restaurants, accommodations, and points of interest along our route
- contacting those companies as well as visitor and convention bureaus to set up activities for the book
- developing an itinerary for travels related to the upcoming book
I have structured this list of activities to provide you with valuable real-world experience – and I am more than willing to tweak my requirements in any way necessary to better meet your programs needs. I guarantee that you will receive hands-on, practical experience that will serve you well as you head out into the job market after graduation. The dates of the internship are flexible (can start earlier or later, if needed.) And it is unpaid (but with the possibility of a bonus based on performance.)
