Responsibilities include helping find new bands that fit within our strict criteria, updating the company's web site as needed to reflect new additions to our artist roster and added tour dates, logos, band photos, etc., finding venues in areas that they are asked to research, coordinating the scheduling of multiple bands, venues and businesses; creating and dispersing marketing materials to relevant press/blog/social media outlets and follow-up with those outlets and letting us know of a band's touring schedule and availability updates. Internships are unpaid, but could potentially lead to later employment within the company.
