Autumn UP Wedding + Event Studio Internship July 07 2016, 0 Comments

At Urban Poppy we are always on the lookout for energetic and fun individuals with a great eye for design. Interns play a vital role at Urban Poppy and we look forward to adding new members to our team who each bring their own unique experiences. Our goals for our interns are twofold: to grow as individuals, professionally and personally in the world of floral event design; and to help us accomplish more than we otherwise could.

While this internship can be demanding at times, it also can be a lot of fun and affords you with the opportunity to learn a multitude of skills both in hands-on floral design and the practical aspects of small business operations. During the internship you will not only learn the ins and outs of the wedding world and grow in your floral knowledge, but also build new friendships as part of the Urban Poppy family. 

If interested, please call our shop at 912-429-3298 and/or email us at urbanpoppy@gmail.com with "Autumn Studio Internship" in the subject line. Thanks! We're looking forward to hearing from you soon.
