Shure has announced its second annual Get the Gig Artist Relations internship competition.
Entries are now being accepted for the summer 2013 program, where one winner will get an “inside look” at the music industry and learn how to outfit some of today’s most talented artists and bands with the right equipment to produce the best sound possible — in the studio or on stage.
“If your world revolves around music and you’re not afraid to get your hands dirty…you could be our next summer intern,” said Cory Lorentz, Artist Relations Manager for Shure. “Our requirements are simple – be hungry to learn and be ready to expect the unexpected. While artist relations has its perks, it’s definitely not a ‘walk in the park.’ There’s no such thing as a typical day.”
Shure Artist Relations manages the relationships between musical artists and bands and the Company, providing product and technical support and assisting their front of house, monitor, and studio engineers as needed. Fans around the world enjoy music created by Shure artists such as Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Jason Mraz, Matt & Kim, Mos Def, The Band Perry, The Black Keys, and Toby Keith, among others.
During the summer, the “Get the Gig” intern’s responsibilities may include providing support for social media initiatives, helping to manage Shure artist endorsers, assisting in the evaluation of potential endorsers, working with the Company to negotiate endorsement contracts, and coordinating Shure-sponsored events, including clinics and trade shows.
College juniors, seniors, and recent graduates from the class of 2012, who reside in the U.S., are eligible to enter and take part in up to three rounds of competition to demonstrate why they deserve to be the next Shure Artist Relations intern.
