StarChefs.com is accepting applications for an event planning and public relations internships to work on the StarChefs.com International Chefs Congress and Rising Star Galas. We're looking for a dedicated, ambitious intern with a great eye for detail and a keen sense of organization. These are some of the most important culinary events in the world, and you'll get to help make it all happen. Ideally, you'd start in the spring and work through the end of September to get the full range of event planning and execution.
An internship at StarChefs is a substantive and challenging work experience. You will have the opportunity to develop and apply specific skills (i.e. research, writing, computer, presentation skills), as well as the opportunity to network with leading chefs while organizing our events. You'll be working with venues, suppliers, presenters, budgets, rentals, and of course, lots of great food.
Because we are a small company (19 employees), you have the opportunity to really make an impact on the company and the service we provide. Internships are for 4-6 months and are unpaid. Internships can be eligible for college credit. Last year, StarChefs hired on 3 of its interns for full-time employment.
In order to benefit from an internship with us, you will need to be a self-starter capable of doing largely unsupervised work. You will need strong writing and research skills, professional phone/interpersonal skills, an entrepreneurial spirit, and a drive for results.
Don't just send us your resume. Check out our online magazine and tell us why you are the best candidate for the job. No applicant will be considered without a detailed cover letter.
