During this internship I did many tasks. Daily I would offer administrative help to the Executive Director while also managing inquiries and weddings. I also provided day-of staffing at weddings and any other events at the Scottish Rite. I assisted with prior planning to events, set up, running the event, and tear down.


My greatest accomplishment from this experience was learning more about the Event Industry. Every event is different, and every day you will experience new things and take away great lessons.

What advice would you give?

Never say no to any opportunity. It may seem stressful at the time, but once it is over you will realize how much you learned and how much it has changed you.
