FestivALL Seeks Summer Interns
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- FestivALL Charleston is taking applications for internships that offer a unique experience working for the citywide celebration of visual and performing arts, dance, music and more.
Eligible applicants include students from high school juniors through graduate level. Interns must be available to work from early May through the end of June, particularly for the FestivALL event dates of May 27-29 and June 16-27. A driver's license is a plus, but not a requirement.
Interns for the 2015 FestivALL performed functions such as coordinating marketing and social media, assisting with event production and management, curating exhibits and assisting with volunteers.
Interns noted the experience was valuable, allowing them to work alongside professionals, carry out responsibilities, and learn new skills. FestivALL interns have gone on to work for FestivALL, the Charleston Convention & Visitors Bureau, Wild & Wonderful WV and more.
Six interns will be hired this year; a stipend is provided.
Application deadline is March 31. Forms are available on the FestivALL website, festivallcharleston.com/info.
