If you love event planning, creating engaging and educational environments for guests, and are looking for in-depth event experience to add to your resume, this internship is designed for you.

At Virtual, we work with hugely successful global companies, and our events team is a group of fun, smart people who do everything to ensure that these companies have well-planned, successful events. Take your learning outside of the classroom, and expand your social network to include people who do what you want to do every day and get paid for it. Virtual can give you that opportunity, along with a fun culture and great learning environment.

Our Internship Program is unique in that we encourage all of our interns to have a voice in the company and to learn and grow during your time with us through shadowing opportunities and taking part in cross-functional projects. You'll also get a chance to sit down with senior executives, learn about their background and dig a little deeper into how they got where they are today while they share advice on things that helped them along the way.

You will also be joining and socializing with a great group of interns just like you!
