Kennedy Center by Night
(Dartmouth Career Services) – The Kennedy Center hires 30 interns every semester, each of them is assigned to a different office. Dartmouth junior Amber Porter worked in an office called Performing Arts for Everyone, an initiative that offers a different performance every day at 6 pm on the Kennedy’s Center Millennium Stage.
All performances offered by the program are free and open to the public.

According to Porter,

I joined a small staff team of five full-time employees. We worked collaboratively on assignments. One of the primary tasks I was assigned was to work directly with visiting artists to create performance programs for each event.
