Find 2019 Event Planning Internships

The Industry

Are you looking for paid 2017 event planning internships or entry-level event planning jobs? Even in the digital age, face-to-face interaction is an important part of doing business. Events and meetings give people the chance to network, build trust, learn, and be entertained.

Event Planning Internships

Event planning internships allow interns to be a part of all stages of the planning process. Event planners coordinate all aspects of events, weddings, and meetings ranging. As a summer intern, you’ll likely work on a team that handles everything from choosing a venue, negotiating contracts with suppliers, arranging transportation, ordering food and making final decisions on entertainment.

The modern event planner uses technology to successfully orchestrate fantastic events. Take the opportunity in your event planning summer internship to get familiar with everything from Google Drive to organize and collaborate on event details, to project management tools like Asana and Trello, and platforms like Eventbrite to help you get the word out about your event.

The Career Options

Most event planners work for private companies such as event planning agencies who are hired by companies and individuals to organize their big events. You might also work directly for a large company or other organization and handle all its conventions, sales meetings, and holiday parties.

The primary types of event planners include association planners, government planners, corporate planners, convention service planners, and social event planners. Employers favor event planning candidates with a Certified Meeting Professional credential (CMP) coupled with a bachelor’s degree in fields such as meeting and event management, hospitality, tourism management, communications, or public relations.

The Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of Meeting, Convention, and Event Planner jobs is expected to grow about 10% over the next decade, which is faster than average.
