Summary of Internship

My responsibilities at my internship included meeting deadlines, getting paper work done, keeping files organized, and having clear communication with my mentor. I learned how to plan a trip for over one-hundred people as well as how to advertise the event. Also, I helped organize a dinner dance for over three hundred people. I had to research prices for favors, centerpieces, and everything else. The most valuable lesson I learned is that in events planning you must stick to your budget or else you will be in over your head. I am glad I got to use skills I learned from the finance academy at my internship.
