My internship with TaylorMade Experience was an extremely worthwhile experience and a great foundation for the beginning of my professional career. I had the opportunity to work with many high profile clients, such as the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights that provided me with valuable hands-on experience in the events and fundraising industry. Additionally, I was able to develop many great relationships throughout my time with the TaylorMade Experience team. I consider Christina one of my mentors because she is successful, knowledgeable, and passionate about what she does, which makes her a great person to look up to. My experience with TME was rewarding and fulfilling and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a way to get into the industry.
I completed my internship with TaylorMade Experience in May 2011 when Christina hired me full-time. To say I learned a lot in my two years with TME would be a gross understatement. The time spent working under the executive team - Christina, Jen, and Jae - is still, for me, an unparalleled period of personal and professional development. With the TME team, I not only learned tangible skills (e.g. Events 101 and the fundamentals of working in an office), but also intangible lessons like what it means to work on a small team and the importance of delivering the "client-is-always-right" concept in manageable and highly effective ways. Christina, Jen, and Jae were great mentors, setting high expectations for me, but always making themselves available for guidance along the way. I highly recommend an internship with TaylorMade Experience. It was, for me, an incredible opportunity that jumpstarted my career, and provided me with all of the skills I needed to advance even further."
My time with TaylorMade Experience was one of the most beneficial, informative and fun internship experiences I ever had! The staff at TME was so supportive and unlike other internships, I was able to work on real projects, not busy work, that were important to the business and its clients. Even as an intern, I always felt that my voice was heard and my opinion mattered. Being a TME intern allowed me to visit new places, meet incredible people and increase my professional skills, all while having fun with some truly inspiring women. I can honestly say having TME on my resume helped me get my current job and continues to impress everyone I share my internship experience with.
"TaylorMade Experience really does it all – and I got to witness this behind the scenes. At a first glance, it may be hard to believe that a team of fewer than 10 members could do what it does; and yet, TME is able to create amazing value and deliver impeccable events for its clients. During my internship, not only did I feel empowered by the women around me, but I also felt a strong sense of family. I really would encourage other students with an interest in event management or even consulting searching for internship opportunities to look into TaylorMade Experience. I really felt like a valuable member of the team, and I’m so glad to have been part of the TME family.
