And So It Begins…

This past semester I took a class called Online Journalism in which we blogged about various topics related to journalism and the media (you can check out that blog here).  I took an interest in blogging and decided I would keep with it during the summer.  So if you would like to follow along with what I’m doing, this blog would be a perfect way to do so! I’m hoping to blog once or twice a week, but we’ll see how it goes once I get invested in my internship and part-time job.  I’m hoping to post lots of pictures and stories about my summer spent in New Jersey!

On Saturday, I will be taking off on the adventure of a lifetime as I move to New Jersey for an internship.  I will be interning at a premier wedding and event venue located over the Atlantic Ocean, called One Atlantic.  One Atlantic hosts a variety of events including weddings, Bat and Bar Mitzvahs,  and corporate events.  Over 12 weeks I will learn all the aspects of planning and executing an exclusive event.  I will be spending 3 weeks working with the departments of human resources, marketing & sales and 3 weeks with catering, 3 weeks with event coordination and 3 weeks with event planning.    I’ve known for quite a few years I wanted to pursue a career in event planning and fortunately I was given this fantastic opportunity this summer.  I’m extremely excited to see what happens during the course of 12 weeks, but it is also slightly scary as I move to a new state and spend my first summer away from Dillsburg, my family, and all my friends.  It is frightening and thrilling all at the same time.
