INTERN SPOTLIGHT!

August 09, 2016. Category: Intern Spotlight, internship

We were so lucky to have such a wonderful intern spend her summer with us! So, before she leaves and heads back to school we thought it would be fun to see what some of her favorite moments were while she was at A. Dominick Events.

Meet Jillian Loeffler

FullSizeRender

Where are you from: Ellicott City, Maryland

Where are you at school: I will be a senior at The University of Delaware this fall!

Did you always want to be in the events industry: I honestly had no idea what I wanted to do in high school or even during my first year of college for that matter. My sophomore year of college, I was elected to my sorority’s executive board as the Vice President of Public Relations, which is what first sparked my interest in events. Through this position I had the responsibility of planning and executing various chapter events, and I realized that it didn’t feel like a job to me. I thoroughly enjoyed every step of the planning process, as well as being able to combine creativity with organizational skills. This experience really helped me discover that I wanted to pursue a career in this industry.

What has been your favorite part of your internship: I absolutely love that event planning isn’t monotonous. Each day is different, and every event is different, which adds an exciting aspect to the job that really sets it apart from other careers.

What was your favorite moment during your internship: My favorite highlight was definitely attending my first wedding at the Newseum. Being able to work on-site and witness each specific detail come together for the big day really emphasized the rewarding aspect of event planning. The fast pace of the day-of operations really showed how crucial an event planner is in making the day run as smoothly as possible.
