Gold Crown Events is currently accepting applications for a commission-based paid internship position for the Summer of 2015! College students interested in hospitality, marketing, advertising, public relations, or communication can receive specialized training, industry contacts, and experience in multiple disciplines.
Our program will combine intensive, one-on one classroom instruction from professionals in the industry, along with on-the-job training in a real work environment with our clients. Selected individuals will shadow the Event Planners in all aspects of our business and work with a wide variety of subject matter. Class session topics will range from professionalism in the workplace to ethics, from meeting with vendors to selecting venues for the event, and from time management to event design. Upon successful completion of the program, interns may receive priority for any permanent, part/full-time openings within our company.
Two (2) students will be selected to participate. Ideally, selected applicant will be college sophomores or juniors (however, current seniors and freshmen will also be considered). Candidates will be selected on the basis of academic achievement, demonstrated interest in industries mentioned above, and overall professionalism.
The application is open to candidates of diverse backgrounds; all are encouraged to apply. Please note that all references will be checked prior to acceptance. If the internship leads to future employment, please note that anyone who accepts a position in our company will be required to pass a background check.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for the BEST! You must be outgoing, have a winning attitude and be professional in your appearance. We are looking for someone with an entrepreneurial spirit and who demonstrates leadership qualities. This is not a job, but a way of thinking.

How do I succeed within the scope of the internship?
In order to succeed, you will learn the Gold Crown Events way of service and will work with our staff and some clients to achieve our mutual goals. You will need to apply yourself and use your talents, critically thinking through each unique situation. If you have a desire to learn the industry and to assist in the growth of this business, then you will succeed.
*Some local travel at your expense will be required during the semester for meetings but all will be within a 20-mile radius.
