Become an Intern at the Fair

Each year the North Dakota State Fair hires two marketing / communications interns to join the State Fair marketing team.

Interns at a 2010 KISS concert promotion

Our marketing internships aren’t your every day internship.  Each intern receives a list of projects and events that they are responsible for, they are then given the freedom to complete the projects while coming up with new events and ideas for the 2011 Fair. Interns will be exposed to the ins and outs of event planning while assisting the marketing team with planning and promotion of the 2011 North Dakota State Fair.

Additional intern responsibilities include planning and executing special events, assisting with publicity, coordinating and updating social networking efforts  (keeping tabs on our Facebook Page, Twitter Page and of course our blog), writing news releases and newsletters, updating our website,  as well as basic administrative duties. Individuals must be incredibly organized, have amazing people skills, be detail orientated, and have the ability to work in a fast pace environment on multiple tasks.

These internships are full time from mid-May through mid-August, with the ability to start part-time prior to May if possible.
