I recently received word from the folks over at the Crocodile that they're looking to bring on a booking/marketing intern to help out around the club. Details are below.
In general, though, this sounds like a great opportunity for someone looking to get their foot into the industry. As the Croc's Alicia Amiri explains below, former interns are often looked to when vacancies arise, and Croc bookers have gone on to do many things, like starting their own PR firms, going to work at labels like Sub Pop, etc.
Here are the details:
It's unpaid, must be 21, music industry experience preferred, regular weekly hours necessary. Great fit for someone for school credit, but I'm looking for at least 6 month commitment. Interested students should send an email to email@example.com.
Most music industry people started with internships. Myself included. The girl who took my last job at Neumos was my intern. Another old intern of mine is now booking rendezvous, so it can be a super awesome opportunity for someone who's into it.
At first they'd be helping with ticketing, postering, and general office / venue admin. If they do a good job and want to get into more stuff, they'll help with local booking, more proactive marketing and eventually be my fill in when I'm out of town on tours. If they're just trying to learn about the industry, they'll be around the day to day of booking and marketing and organizing a venue.
