2009 Internship Opportunities

Recently, we have been approached by a few college students asking about internship opportunities at Events by Evonne. As our 2009 wedding season is fast approaching, it's time to start the search and the interviews.

If you are interested in wedding/event management and have what it takes to work in a fast paced, high pressure environment, please email your cover letter and resume by February 28th to We do not accept any applications by phone. Please see details below:

We are looking for two to three qualified candidates to assist us throughout our 2009 season. I will begin interviewing those who qualify starting in March.

  • Maintain communication between team and vendors
  • Assure effective coordination during the event
  • Assist in set up, facilitate both ceremony and reception alongside a team member
  • College junior or senior in a related field preferred
  • Strong organizational and leadership skills
  • Excellent interpersonal communication and phone skills
  • Must be a dependable proactive team player who is able to multi-task and think on their feet
  • Must be detail oriented and work well under pressure
  • Must be energetic, fun, with a positive attitude
  • Previous event experience a plus
  • This is a part time, non-paid internship
  • Hours will vary by event (mostly on the weekends and some weekdays/weeknights)
  • Most events are on Mau`i where we are based, but we travel throughout the Hawaiian islands (any costs relating to travel to the neighbor islands if necessary will be covered)
