Interns have the unique opportunity to learn about the music industry and more specifically, the world of music publicity – a distinct and constantly changing field. Among the many things an intern will learn about include creating press releases, media alerts, press kits, advance media mailings, creative media campaigns specific to tours and album releases, managing guest lists, and how to pitch stories to press outlets. We look to tailor each internship to fit the interests and talents of each individual intern. Our interns will become familiar with national and regional media outlets across multiple platforms, including: blogs, late night and morning TV shows, magazines (print and digital iPad/iPhone app-based), radio and podcasts, newspapers, websites, and webzines.

Interns will work closely with the President of Stunt Company as well as all Stunt Company employees, each with a unique background in music. In addition, when artists from our roster come to play shows, the interns will have the opportunity to attend the show as well as meet managers, booking agents and label representatives. Please check out our website and artist roster at www.stuntcompany.com.

Qualifications: Must be positive, hard-working, detail oriented, organized and dependable. Candidates must excel at multi-tasking and know his/her way around a PC. Reliability to handle and complete tasks is very essential. We are seeking interns with a genuine interest in the music industry. Previous PR experience preferred but not required. Most importantly, all interns must be self-starters.

Location: Brooklyn, NY
Hours: 11am-7pm, 2-3 days/week
Length: 3-6 months
Start date: January 2013 or May 2013

You better list AP.net as one of the websites you visit.

I'd be all about this if it were compensated, but alas, I need a paid job or else it's back home to the parents at the end of the month...
