Looking for a career or internship opportunity in the wedding industry? Stay tuned to this page! We’ll add opportunities available from Southern Maryland Weddings as well as wedding industry vendors in our network!

Intern with Southern Maryland Weddings!

Are you interested in the wedding business? Are you curious about how a busy website and magazine office works? Southern Maryland Weddings is looking for interns to serve in several areas of our online and offline operations. While the internships are unpaid, you will gain real-world experience in online and print publishing, marketing, event planning, and more.

We’re seeking college students majoring in communications, writing, journalism, graphic design, marketing, video production, or related fields. The ideal intern will be organized, motivated, and able to work independently. He or she will be a creative person who is on top of the latest trends and able to think outside the box! Strong writing, communication, and computer skills are a must. Hours will be determined with each intern.

We currently have these internships available:

Marketing Assistant
The Marketing Assistant will have the opportunity to try out all areas of marketing our publications and events to a large local audience. Tasks will include graphic design, website and social media work, and communications with clients and vendors. You will also have the opportunity to assist at trade shows and bridal events in Southern Maryland.

Event Planning Assistant
Learn firsthand how to plan and execute fun and successful events, from bridal shows to vendor meetups. The Event Planning Assistant will assist in the planning and preparation of events, marketing and communications for those events, as well as administrative tasks. You’ll learn how a creative small business office works.

Publications Assistant
The Publications Assistant is someone who still believes in the power of print! You’ll learn graphic design and photo editing skills as you help prepare our annual print magazine and other printed materials. Knowledge of desktop publishing a plus.

Video Assistant
We’re increasing our video content on our social media and website, and the Video Assistant will play a vital part of expanding our video presence. Tasks will include writing scripts, shooting and editing video, and producing video for the web. Experience with online video and video editing a plus but not required.

Website Designer/ Developer
In addition to our website here at SoMdWeddings.com, we operate several wedding related e-commerce websites. Tasks will include working with programming and plug-ins with our WordPress websites and adding, modifying, content for our X-Cart e-commerce websites.
