An extremely prominent record label, located in NYC, is in dire need of one or two interns for the fall semester. The internship will call for a litany of tasks from your basic mailings to actual hands on work dealing with artists, record stores, market research, online marketing, etc. We need someone who is a quick learner and eager to work within the industry. The intern must be able to think outside the box and bring real ideas to the table. These slow times are an indicator to start getting people in the door who have an TRUE passion for music and aren’t just looking for celebrity encounters. That being said, we work with some of the largest current artists.

The marketing department, specifically, is full of really down to earth people. We are flexible and encouraging with no egos.

Requirements
- ability to get into New York City by a certain time
- familiarity with Microsoft office (excel, word, outlook)
- letter from school stating you will be receiving credit for the internship
- familiarity with adobe photoshop (preferred but not a requirement)
- a real desire to work and learn within the music industry

An internship can only be what you make of it, so please send all resumes to MusicMktgInternship@gmail.com . Please only submit once.

Thank you!

It sure would be swell if we could get some JOB opportunities up on this site, you hear me record labels? Those of us with college degrees and valid experience would love a chance to do something with our lives. Siiiigh.

Unfortunately, the way the music industry works is that you typically need an internship (or a few internships), whether you have a degree or not, to land a job.
It's not just about paying your dues and getting your hands dirty, it's also about making connections and proving that you're worth your salt. I know that's the cliche but it's 100% true. That's how things work in the entertainment business.

That is what I was referring to when I said "and valid experience." I think anyone who thinks they will get anywhere with only a degree especially in this day and age is dreaming.

Sadly having an internship with a national music corporation and the highest recommendation praises in the world, isn't always enough to get a job right now because companies are cutting back on entry-level jobs and using interns for everything. Not saying this particular company is, but a lot of them. So I was just lamenting how inundated the internet is with internship opportunities and how few actual job opportunities there are.
