The Event Assistant provides event leadership and logistical support before, during, and after each event. I have to Designing and supporting event logistics and marketing efforts.

It hasn't happened yet but I know the greatest accomplishment for we will be the Stash the Trash event I'm planning. It is already the greatest accomplishment because I am taking the lead on planning this event. I have made the press release, the flyer, making the social media post, and so much more. I am the head contact person for this event and I have had meetings with partnering organizations to help make this event possible. I can wait to see how this event will turn out!
What advice would you give?
Internships are a great way to gain hands on experience for your chosen field. Do an internship you actually want to benefit from and not just one to receive credit. Take advantage of any opportunity you have to showcase your knowledge you have gained from the internship. Make your internship count to benefit you in the future.
