Michaela O’Connor is a relationship oriented communications and marketing student at High Point University. Growing up in Manchester Connecticut, she always found her second home to be under the fireworks at The Magic Kingdom.
As of June 7th, 2017, Michaela will begin her professional internship with Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings! Prior to securing her dream internship, Michaela executed her interview skills in a highly competitive interview process.
“I was told by recruiters that my resume, cover letter, and conversational interview skills made me strong candidate for the position.” Says Michaela.
Michaela thanks the Brand Girls to her heightened confidence and success while obtaining this internship.
“Using my skills I learned through working with The Brand Girls I was able to stand out among hundreds of applicants and secure one of just two available positions as a Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings Sales Professional Intern. I was told by recruiters that my resume, cover letter, and conversational interview skills made me strong candidate for the position.”
Some of Michaela’s responsibilities include securing and following up on sales, developing event concepts, working with operational areas including floral, catering, and audio/visual, and working directly with guests.
Michaela says “This internship is truly my dream job and I cannot thank my family, friends, and of course The Brand Girls for supporting me every step of the way and always encouraging me to listen to Walt Disney when he said “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
