Summary of Internship
While interning with the bergenPAC, students will have the opportunity to observe many different business situations and types of work around the office. Typically you will seek your mentor and await instruction. Traditional intern work is to be expected. You may be in the Box Office stuffing promotional envelopes or upstairs filing or removing staples from show-riders. On occassion, you may even be able to go out into the streets to promote upcoming events or collect menues for artists who will be performing there. Not all of the experience comes from the work given, some comes from your own observation of how business is done in the office. Overall, interning at the bergenPAC is convenient and can at times be very beneficial.
