The Greater Richmond Convention Center offers internship placements for students interested in careers related to advertising, creative services, public relations, sales, and facility marketing. An internship at the GRCC is intended to provide a true learning experience for students as they observe a variety of functions. The off-campus program enables students to develop marketable skills in a real-life environment, gain insight into their chosen career and get a head start on their career path.

The internship is a non-paid position and is typically limited to one semester per student, or a summer program. Scheduling is flexible in order to accommodate the student’s school calendar, or summer vacation schedule. Students are required to receive credit hours for this opportunity and submit the appropriate paperwork to their supervisor, prior to their first day.

The size and location of the Greater Richmond Convention Center make it one of the most desirable meeting destinations in the Mid- Atlantic region. Situated in the heart of Virginia’s capital city, the 700,000 square-foot facility sits on five-and-a-half city blocks. Interior accommodations include 178,159 square feet of exhibit space, 32 meeting rooms and the 30,550-square-foot Grand Ballroom.

Sales/Marketing: Assist the Sales and Marketing Department in areas such as selling space, advertising, marketing, graphic design, promotions and client relations. Participate in ongoing learning to include selling to prospective clients, proposals and contracts, tradeshow participation, marketing/advertising campaigns, drafting press releases and assisting with promotional opportunities. A fair amount of computer work / paperwork is required in the sales process, including Internet research, entry of accounts into the sales data base, blocking space for client events in the sales data base, preparation of Microsoft Word & Excel reports and proposal documents, preparation of sales kits and mailings. There is also some filing and phone work involved. The student’s ability, grasp of the scope of work, and accuracy on projects will determine the level of involvement in actual direct sales efforts and assignment to marketing projects.
