Events Coordinator and Venue Management Internship (170 views)

Washington DC
May 13, 2018

The Showroom, located in the heart of Downtown DC, is seeking enthusiastic, organized, and hard-working individuals that have a willingness to learn, the intuitive nature to suggest, and a passion for events life.  No experience is required, but an understanding of organizing events and planning is strongly preferred.  We are happy to train the right candidate.

We foster a fun and low-stress working environment, yet we are aware that there is a fine line between a casual atmosphere and a lazy business.  Our goal is to set, manage, and deliver on expectations… Exceeding those expectations only comes as a result of the positive environment we foster and promote.  We are an owner operated company that finds success in operational ease, but recognize that it takes some hard work and commitment to solidify that foundation.  The ability to retain information, implement procedure and policy clearly and effectively is extremely important.

We are currently hiring for part-time, paid internships for the summer and fall, ultimately hoping to find someone to join our team full time down the line…  While we are flexible with hours and able to work around class schedules, weekday and weekend availability is required. There are no regular hours, and the events industry has all sorts of odd days, nights, and times.  We are close to the metro and have a parking garage in the building as well.    

If you are interested, please email us your resume along with a short explanation as to why you think you would be a good fit. Qualified candidates will be contacted to schedule an interview.  Below is a brief summary of the requirements, a general overview of the job description, and a short list of some of the perks that come with the position.
