Billye Weiner Writes About Her Event Marketing Internship

My time as an Event Marketing Intern at PRA New Orleans has been one of my greatest professional experiences. It truly shaped my last semester at Tulane University and myself as an individual, professionally and personally. From my first day at PRA, the team welcomed me and urged me to exercise my creativity and think outside of the box. They emphasized authenticity and dedication to our colleagues and clients.

The PRA team was always willing and eager to immerse me in every aspect of the business any chance they could. During the time I spent with Jeff, Cindy, and the rest of the team, I learned so much about Destination Management, Event Planning, and more. I learned from both the Sales and Operations teams, as well as gained familiarity with Salesforce projects and social media marketing. This position allowed me to get my hands dirty in so many aspects of the business and I am grateful to have learned from this group of people.

Most importantly, I was able to be a part of this team during a very difficult time in the world and I could not be more grateful for it. No experience amounts to the ability to learn from a team facing adversity head-on, solving problems and going above and beyond for their clients. My time at PRA New Orleans has taught me my most valuable lessons in my professional career and I look forward to utilizing the values instilled in me by this team moving forward.
