    Hey

    My name is Danielle. I also came across this site because It’s my dream to be a wedding planner. I don’t have any experience in the field. I just finished my first year at Concordia in Open Studies. I just got accepted into the Professional Administrative Certificate program at NorQuest as well as the Business Administrative Diploma program also at NorQuest for the Fall term of 2014. I don’t know what program I should take to help pursue my dream. I would like some information and your stories of your success. I would also like to know how you got to where you are today. I was wondering if you still offer something similar or if you have any volunteering experience that I could have. As well as just someone to talk to in the business.

    Thanks

    Hi Jennifer,

    Will there be any internship programs in 2016? I would be very interested in learning from you!

    Thanks!

      Hi Jenn,
      No, I don’t think so, not interns. We may be looking for more onsite coordinators and assistants though. Happy to receive resumes any time.
      Cheers,
      JB
