Still need persuading? Then hear what Louise has to say about her year on the Convene Internship:

"My year at Convene has taken me places I never dreamed was possible. From planning my own 300 person event, to selling my own events, while at the same time seeing New York through all 14 locations throughout Manhattan (including the 64th floor in One World Trade center). I also think that to be part of a company that has such a fascinating and strong company culture has been so rewarding because it really shows that when you work with people who care - you care. I will keep Convene and New York with me wherever I go from here, and I am forever grateful for this opportunity!" (Louise Johansson, NYC Program 2016/2017)

"Convene is truly a great company to choose for your training program. They are at a very exciting stage of the company's life cycle where it's not really a startup anymore but rapidly expanding in both the scale of business and the services provided. Nonetheless it still feels like you have found a second family. After spending my year working events with Convene, I consider each of my colleagues a friend. I have learned a tremendous amount during my time here and would recommend this program to anyone who want's to challenge themselves and pursue a career at the corporate side of hospitality." (Brigitta Gerber, NYC Program 16/17)
