Easy Event Planning LLC (EEP) is a socially-conscious technology company that is changing the way people plan events. We offer a comprehensive digital markieting internship (learn more here) but we are also specifically looking for a team of PR students who want to get started right away to promote our “Hope and Thank COVID-19 Heroes” initiative on a nationwide scale. The site allows everyone across the country to thank the healthcare workers risking their lives and the lives of their loved ones to save ours. You will find more information and be able to post and share your own message here: https://www.easyeventplanning.com/honor-and-thank/.
More than 1700 American healthcare workers have lost their lives. And our country has talked about nothing but politics for months. It’s time to get our priorities back in order.
The site allows people to upload a video, image or text message of hope and gratitude. Messages can be sent to a single healthcare hero, a facility, all facilities within a 25-mile radius, the entire state or the whole country.
This is an unprecedented opportunity for you to gain measurable, impressive resume experience in an initiative we believe can go viral. Future employers will be very impressed to hear you were part of a well-known movement.
You must be able to devote at least 10 hours per week to the internship, but preference and leadership positions are given to students who want to devote more time. Given the current COVID environment we are trying to accommodate as many students as we can and it’s just too difficult to manage too many. Scheduling is flexible but if reaching out to media outlets you will have most luck during regular working hours.
You will research and contact the right politicians, media contacts, influencers, entertainers, sports figures and celebrities who can get this viral. You will manage our social media presence regarding the initiative as well. You must be willing to make actual phone calls and aggressively push to get the message out.
You may work the entire semester just on HonorAndThank.com or you may transition over to projects related to EasyEventPlanning.com further into the spring semester. You may be able to have two separate “employers” on your resume, as we will have tasks related to both HonorAndThank.com and EasyEventPlanning.com.
This is ideal for students who are public relations and communications majors. You must be proactive and highly communicative. You will work directly with EEP’s CEO on this project.
Please apply within Handshake but we need you to also complete this form.
We have the largest event vendor directory in the United States (more than 400k profiles) and game-changing technology that no one has (an instant chat feature, for example). The site is poised to become very high-profile in coming years.
