It has been a little over 3 months since I got engaged; Both weddings I had previously been working on have come and gone, and now it’s August and there are two more weeks left before I start my Fall semester of school. I find myself constantly baffled with how quickly time appears to move. I am both excited and nervous about the beginning of classes, and even more excited and nervous about some other potential news I should receive at some point this month.
I was browsing the pages of Twitter the other day looking at new followers, and skimming the wedding industry sites, when I noticed a local company of wedding planners had tweeted that they were on the hunt for a fall intern. The idea of it seemed so exciting and excellent to me that I immediately visited their webpage, and emailed them to inquire about the position. Luckily, I did not have to wait long for a response with details. The position will be un-paid and run from September through November. It’d require some office work during the week and helping out with weddings on Saturdays.
I mulled it over in my brain for about a week before I made any real definite decisions. I am taking three classes this semester, rather than my usual two, in hopes of speeding up the process. Between those being three nights a week for 3 hours and working full-time, it almost didn’t seem feasible that I could juggle this internship as well. The decision I finally came to was to just apply. It can’t hurt to try, right? A few hours spent buffing up my resume and putting together an eloquently, hopefully, worded cover page and off they went.
I have yet to hear back from anyone, but I am guessing they will probably continue to take applications for most of August since the internship doesn’t start ’til next month. BUT, I am wishing and hoping( and thinking and praying) that I at least get the chance to interview. This position would help me immensely in getting some good experience to plan weddings and I would absolutely love to have three months of an intern position with great local wedding planners on my resume.
In the meantime, I will be preparing myself to attend the Fall Southern Bridal Show Expo coming up next weekend. Any future brides want to join?
