Employment & Internship Opportunities
Are you a money-minded, people person? Do you enjoy going the extra mile to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible? We may be looking for you! Miami Book Fair International—the most prestigious, culturally-diverse literary gathering in the world—is currently on the hunt for a Development Assistant to help the Manager of Corporate Relations with the management of the Book Fair’s corporate and media sponsors. The correct candidate should possess overall excellent written and oral communication skills, multi-tasking abilities and computer competency. This position calls for a fair amount of schmoozing and liaising with sponsors, as well as the need to work long hours and weekends as event time approaches. Duties include, but are not limited to: supporting the Manager of Corporate Relations by following-up with individual sponsors in regards to returning signed agreements, and submitting logos and other materials needed for sponsor recognition; maintaining database of confirmed sponsors, updating information as needed; coordinating ticket order requests from sponsors, with confirmation, as well as overseeing the assembly of sponsor credentials. During the Fair, the Development Assistant must be on-hand to assist the Manager with sponsor registration, sponsor information area, and other various logistical issues that may arise prior to and during the event, as well as assisting with the coordination and execution of special events and high-scale receptions hosted by MBFI. This position is seasonal, from August through the end of November.
We expect candidates to be ready to work hard and always keep a positive attitude. In return, our seasonal employees and interns will gain invaluable experience, have the chance to rub elbows with some of today's literary giants, and have an opportunity to make a difference in children and adults in our community!
For consideration, please send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Eligible candidates will be contacted for initial interview.
