Hi, I’m Jasmin. I’m nineteen years old and I’m a student at Albeda College, studying International Event Management Studies.
My school introduced me to Venture Cafe’s Thursday Gathering as part of my studies and a way to get study points. I thought that it sounded fun and volunteered! I’m a very sociable person and felt at home instantly. I saw so many people talking and making connections – I really liked that. So I made up my mind, that this was the place I wanted to come and intern for.
I have a few goals during my internship. For my studies, I want to develop more experience in event management and learn how a busy events department functions. But also, I personally want to grow my network and increase my career opportunities for the future. Venture Cafe is THE place to do that.
Do your research and when you find a company, approach them with confidence . There’s no harm in asking directly for the chance to intern – whats the worst that can happen? I also suggest that you be yourself, radiate confidence and be open.
Yes! Just visit a Thursday Gathering. It’s fun and you can meet new people that can further your business.
