A base salary that lasts longer than 2 years.

Get your licensing done before hire date to make life a little easier when doing the actual job. You will miss out on commissions from securities without having passed your exam prior.

Event Marketing Intern

August 2018 • Mason, OH

What I liked

This was truly an amazing experience for me. I worked for 10 days at the Cincinnati Open tennis tournament which is sponsored by Western & Southern. I got to learn about how event planning works and spent a lot of time making sure people were having the best experience possible. My main job was to make people's days better so it was very rewarding. I learned that I have a passion for event planning through this experience!

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have worked with Western & Southern months prior to the tennis tournament to learn about what goes into the planning process months in advance of the event.

Advice

Take advantage of every opportunity you get and make the best out of it. I was not sure what this experience would be like when I got hired but I made sure to learn as much as I could during my time. I am not sure what exactly I want my career path to be so I wanted to learn as much as I could about the company as I could during my internship. Just be the best version of yourself and take advantage of every minute you are working! You could discover something you really love.
