EEP is helping the event industry recover from the pandemic in several important ways detailed here: https://www.easyeventplanning.com/helping-the-event-industry-recover-from-covid/.
EEP is a technology company that is changing the way events are planned across the US. Users can find the services they need (we have the largest event directory in the US), use helpful planning tools and get great ideas from our blog – all in one site. They will soon be able to request tips for their own event at no charge as well. The site is poised to become very high-profile in coming years.
This is a 100% virtual internship and you have a great deal of flexibility on when you work but we are hoping for students looking to devote 15 hours per week or more. You will need to be able to reply to any messages from prospects within a few hours at most even if it’s not a day you were planning to work. Communication will take place via Zoom, Skype video, audio and chat. You will work directly with the company’s CEO unless a sales director is hired.
You will receive 10% commission on payments received while interning with us for most sales. Some outbound sales will be commissioned at 20%. You can actually make quite a bit of money if you take to sales and put the time in.
