Interns gain hands-on experience by helping plan, prepare and execute marketing events, (Summer interns: Sips Under the Sea, World Oceans Day, Yoga by the Water), fundraising events (Fish & Chips, Georgia Aquarium 5k, Red, White & Brew, Aqua Vino), and offsite events happening around the Atlanta community. Interns will create necessary pre-event and post-event materials, schedule volunteers, assist at on-site/off-site events, submit various department requests, participate in meetings and planning sessions, serve as a point of contact to volunteers, fulfill contest and promotional benefits for entrants and partners, produce marketing research, and more.
