Former Events Planning Intern at IVY

almost 2 years ago
Based on my experience, I think the most important skills needed to succeed as an Events Planning Intern are being organized and flexible. Being organized means that you know your calendar and what you need to do to prepare for upcoming events, are always prepared for those events, and are even a few steps ahead so you're not taken by surprise. In turn, being this organized lends itself to being flexible, which is just as important; in events planning, you can be as prepared as possible, but there are likely going to be bumps in the road or last-minute issues that pop up that you have to deal with. Being organized means that even if you are taken by surprise, you can then be flexible enough to handle the new situation and make sure the event goes off as well as it can, whether it is adjusting the decor and layout of tables at an event due to an unexpected change in room size or communicating with a sponsor who has not delivered the promised materials by the event start time (both of which happened at events while I was interning at IVY).
