Music@Menlo

Event Planning Intern

June - August 2019 • Menlo Park, CA

What I liked

I love working within an office daily and getting to do actually hands on work. I was never treated as an intern but rather apart of the team.

What I wish was different

I think the housing could’ve been better planned out but it worked out well as I did mine independently.

Advice

If you think you are not ready to work in an office environment; that’s okay! Be willing to put yourself outside of your comfort zone.

Development and Events Intern

June - August 2018 • Atherton, CA

What I liked

The staff was very hands on while getting us settled into our positions. We also had a series of lectures given by both staff and experts in various aspects of arts management.

What I wish was different

Due to changes in the structure of Music@Menlo's internship program, my job ended up having a greater focus on events planning than development. I would have enjoyed the chance to work more for or with patrons of the organization.

Advice

Regardless of where you work or intern, the ability to think on your feet and adjust to problems quickly is invaluable.
