Wedding Planning and Event Management Internships with LWPI
In today’s competitive world of wedding and event planning, organizations, venues, and vendors need wedding and event professionals who have an insider’s view and understanding of how their specific business contributes to the delivery of a successful wedding, corporate, or social event.
Each qualified student participates in a learning experience to identify and help develop an internship experience to meet their educational goals, career objectives, and academic requirement needs. An internship can be shadowing, a hands-on experience, and in some cases lead to a job. Students also receive academic credit, continuing education units (CEU’s), and a certificate of completion for each learning internship experience.
Real world experience can be the best teacher in a hands-on, education focused application. Therefore, wedding and event planning internship programs that provide a glimpse into “life in the real world” are critical. Students of LWPI who participate in a wedding or event planning internship also receive letters of recommendation, testimonials, and photos from the event they helped to produce to build their professional portfolio. In addition to the internship opportunities, and to complement the academic experience, students can also explore the opportunity to create a custom internship to meet their career goals and objectives within their local market.
