On the blog this month we will be focussing on your career. We’ll be sharing our top tips for furthering your training beyond the coursework, to move closer to achieving your career goals. This week we take on this frequently asked question…
How do you get an internship in the wedding and event industry?
This is one of the biggest questions we get asked by those who dream of a career in the wedding and event industry. Gaining work experience or landing an internship is a great way to develop your practical skills and put what you have learned from our courses into practice. However, it is important to note many wedding and event planners are also small business owners and although they may love the idea of offering hands-on experience, they do not always have the resource to make it possible.
That being said we know from experience that there are a whole host of opportunities out there and here at the Academy we are committed to connecting our students with those offering placements. From the work experience our tutor Christine offers our Australian campus students through her business I Do Crew, to placements with members of our International Advisory Board and industry partners, we are here to support you!
So how do you land those opportunities when you find them?
In this video, our CEO Kylie shares her top 6 tips on how to get that dream internship or work experience placement.
