Internship

Why Intern with TPP?

The TPP internship experience is unique in the variety of events we produce. No other company in CO produces events of such different sizes, goals, and scopes that TPP does. Interning with TPP will immerse you in the world of large event planning and festivals. Our interns have gone on to be successful in many aspects of event planning due to the experience they gained with us. Our goal is to give you hands

on experience in many aspects of the industry. This not only will build your resume, but help give you a preview of which pockets of the industry you like best. As a bonus, almost all of our current full time staff started with TPP through our internship program.

 

“The internships associated with Team Player Productions will allow students to get invaluable hands-on training in the popular and fast-growing field of events management.”

– Jeff Miller, Professor CSU Hospitality Management Department

What Do Our Interns Do?

We put a lot of responsibility on our interns to manage several projects at once and immerse them in our work hard play hard culture. Interns are given tasks pertaining to each of our upcoming events including social media, marketing, booking talent, creative research, volunteer management, administrative duties, client relations, sponsorship fulfillment and much more! Each intern will work on multiple events at once, assisting the Event Director in day to day duties in the office and on site.

FAQ

Our interns work with each event director on various daily projects like research and social media, to big project on the event. You will have some projects with the event director or other interns and some that you will do on your own, but as a small company we collaborate quite a bit. Some examples are:

Our internship is not paid, however we are flexible on hours if you have a part time job or school to consider. We typically ask for about 15 hours a week in the office. When we travel to events the company will cover all travel expenses (food, gas, hotel etc).

(GPA, classes taken, work experience, etc…) We are pretty flexible on past experience and classes. We have interns from all kinds of backgrounds and majors. Interns are not required to be in school or receive course credit, we do however require you to commit to the entirety of the internship.
