WaterFire Providence

Operations Intern

June - August 2018 • Providence, RI

What I liked

Relaxed work environment, a great learning opportunity, I had the chance to sit in on meetings, pitch decor ideas, handle rental orders, and even manage a project independently. The waterfire staff is friendly, happy to teach you, and they have become like a family to me!

What I wish was different

The hours were kind of crazy on event days (20 hour work days) I wish there was financial compensation

Advice

Shadow other departments of interest to learn more ( I shadowed the head of marketing for a day and learned a lot!) They are very open and happy to teach you! They are also involved heavily in the city, so try to network while you intern/work there!
