Intern, Special Events

Department:
Development
Reports To:
Director of Special Events
Classification:
Internship
Job Code:
ISE

The Carnegie Hall Special Events team is a six-person (Director, Associate Director, Manager, Coordinator, Assistant, and Intern) fast-paced and dynamic team within the Development Department.  We are looking for a paid intern to join us in mid/late June of 2018 through the end of October or December. Throughout Carnegie Hall’s annual concert season, the Special Events team oversees approximately 50 donor-related events, including 2-4 large-scale fundraising Galas each year with a total annual revenue goal of $9M-$11M.

The Special Events Intern becomes a fully-integrated member of the Special Events team.  Interns gain experience with research and various writing formats, from donor correspondence to marketing and web copy, as well as project management and hands-on event opportunities, including face-to-face interactions with Carnegie Hall donors and VIP guests.  It is the goal of the department to give interns the knowledge and experience that would prepare them for entry-level fundraising or events positions.  While this is not an internship-to-full-time program, a number of previous Special Events Interns have gone on to successful careers at Carnegie Hall and other leading cultural institutions.  

 
Qualifications

The Special Events Intern should be an outgoing and ambitious self-starter with excellent verbal and written communication skills and should hold or be pursuing a Bachelor’s degree.  The ideal candidate should feel equally comfortable working independently or as part of a group, as well as capable of maintaining discretion around high-profile society and business leaders.  Priority will be given to candidates who have exemplary computer skills, particularly knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite products. Knowledge of fundraising databases, especially Tessitura, is preferred but not necessary.  Some evening hours required.

PLEASE NOTE: Candidates that are interested in more than one area of Development are encouraged to apply to multiple internship positions. 

How To Apply

When submitting your resume, please include a cover letter indicating the specific department or position in which you are interested.
