Hey gang – As I’m sure you’ve heard throughout “Hey, How’d You Get That Music Job??? podcast episodes, having a music internship is a PHENOMENAL way to get your foot in the door, start networking, and start building relationships in the music industry. I just wanted to pass along some music internships I’ve recently heard about. I’ll try to keep adding more in the comments as I see fit. If you know of any others, please do the same!
*Disclaimer: I can’t formally endorse or provide further information on any of these posts, since I’ve just seen them on social media, so proceed accordingly and do your homework! Also, I’ll try to indicate “PAID” or “UNPAID” – Lord knows it aint easy trying to support yourself as an artist/creative! But wishing you all the best of luck, keep on hustling, pursue that dream, and DON’T GIVE UP!
