Description

Our company is a management, label and lifestyle marketing company that builds brands. Immersed in music, film, technology, and fashion not only identifies what's next in culture; they are the culture. Our staff has unparalleled relationships and access within these closed industries. We use an under-the-radar, non-traditional, viral marketing approach to influence the influencer. We capture those individuals with a sophisticated urban mindset, people considered 'early adopters' or 'influencers' and ignite a chain reaction. This unique marketing paradigm works. This internship is ideal for students interested in learning about all the logistical ins and outs of managing musical artists, running a label, producing and directing film/tv and working behind the scenes in the fashion world. You will help our management and marketing teams organize artists’ affairs and help the office run smoothly. Candidates must be proactive, responsible, able to act appropriately with our high profile artists and uphold strict policy of non-disclosure. This position does not offer students benefits as part of the internship program but it does provide a wealth of knowledge and on the job experience. Upon completion you will be provided with documentation showing you successfully completed your internship. Generally this is needed to meet the requirements for obtaining academic credit through educational institutions as part of an internship program. Upon an outstanding completion of the probationary period with our company (90 days), you will be brought on as a full time paid assistant or higher ranking should you prove to be a valuable addition to the team. The exposure to all aspects of the business we handle and networking opportunities will be invaluable to candidates aspiring to work in the music industry.
