INTERNSHIP-Academic credit only- Non-paid
Public Relations & Social Media Internship
For Course Credit only. Non-paid.
Alfred Music’s Public Relations Department is responsible for reaching the trade and consumer network to promote our diverse range of products in traditional and digital press. Our customers include music dealers, music directors, educators, hobbyists, and musicians of all levels who are interested in teaching, learning, or playing music.
This internship will involve the student intern in many areas of the department’s activity in order to provide a well-rounded exposure in public relations in the educational music products industry. The student will “shadow” our Public Relations & Social Media Specialist, as well as additional members of the marketing team, and will provide the student with whatever evaluation is necessary to fulfill the school’s requirement for course credit.
Days and hours: Our office hours are officially M-F 8:00-4:30 p.m., but the hours and days of internships are arranged between interns and the department manager to accommodate the student’s class schedule. Once student’s internship schedule is determined, the student is expected to adhere to that schedule as closely as possible.
The professionals at Alfred Music spend quality time with our interns in order to maximize their learning experience. No “errand-running” internships here; there is hands-on training in many areas of the department. Alfred Music is located in Van Nuys, CA near the 405 FWY on Roscoe Blvd. Casual dress in office.
