Information on Internships at Nettwerk
At Nettwerk, we love our interns and strive to give them the best possible learning experience during their time with us. We offer our students one-on-one guidance, a relaxed atmosphere and opportunities to train in more than one department.
What do we look for an intern? Glad you asked! We like students who ask questions beyond the “how” we do things and look for the “why” we do things in our company. We want applicants who are passionate about music, but who are also looking for a creative career that goes above, “I’m with the band.” We expect our interns to provide us with just as much feedback as we give them, so don’t be surprised if someone asks you, “What do you think of this song?” or “How are you using Twitter?”
We also hold our "Inter Power Hours" throughout each semester for our students. These one hour sessions focus on and are led by one particular department at a time, covering each participating department throughout the semester, and include both a teaching portion and a question and answer time.
Internship Positions Available: Internship opportunities are available and cover most areas of the company, including Marketing, Sales, Film and TV, Management, and Radio Promotion. Nettwerk offers internships at its offices in Boston, New York City, London, Los Angeles and Vancouver intermittently.
Eligibility: A candidate must be enrolled in either a graduate or undergraduate program and be receiving credit for their internship. Please apply only if you meet the elibility requirements.
If Nettwerk Music Group does not currently have the necessary agreement with a candidate’s college or university to receive credit, please contact us at email@example.com so that arrangements can be made.
General Information: Interns are expected to work 15 to 30 hours a week during an 8 to 12 week internship period. All interns are subject to the applicable Nettwerk employee rules, including the Mutual Right to Arbitrate Claims and the Confidentiality Agreement. Interns who choose to use their own computers for work during their internships agree to follow all IT policies, including the prohibition of downloading or bit-torrenting protected files while at the Nettwerk offices.
Application Procedures: Candidates must complete an application form and submit it with their cover letter and resume. Some internship positions require additional application items, such as a writing sample. All application items must be submitted as a complete package. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.
The following departments each participate in in our program (not every department is available at every office):
- Managing an Artist covers a wide range of duties, so students interning in the Management Department never know what the next day will bring! Duties may include updating social networking sites, helping to advance tours, creating travel itineraries and researching backline costs. Interns who spend time working within the Management department will see firsthand the organization and the drive it takes to create a career in music.
- Interns in the Promo Department assist with outreach to college radio stations and local music directors, help maintain the radio spins database and coordinate promotional mailings, including design work for insert flyers. Interns who spend time working within the Radio Promo department will be exposed to a variety of artists and learn about marketing an Artist across different genres.
- Studying in our Online Marketing Department gives students a chance to get real world hands-on experience in the expanding social media industry. Work with an eclectic roster of artists and help develop their online presence through innovative marketing, contests and viral campaigns. Candidates in this department should have some elementary experience with grassroots marketing and be web-savvy. HTML and video editing experience a plus, but not required.
Film & TV:
- Internships in the Film & TV Department at Nettwerk require students who are passionate about helping Artists maximize their music’s exposure through licensing and synchronization. Tasks include maintaining the music library for all Management, Label and Publishing clients, assisting with the planning of showcases and parties, coordinating mailings, researching trailers, films and commercials, and assisting with request paperwork.
Interns are generally assigned to 2 diverse departments to gain a broader knowledge of what Nettwerk does. This allows for a more rounded learning experience. When applying please specify all departments that interest you.
