The PAS Paid Internship Offers Real Experience and Industry Connections
Spend the Spring Semester with PAS and Launch Your Career
The Percussive Arts Society is seeking applicants for our six-month internship program beginning in January 2014. All percussion students who wish to gain music industry experience as a way to promote career goals are encouraged to apply.
PAS interns acquire broad industry experience by assisting with a variety of staff projects, including those relating to music products, teaching, concert production, publishing, artist management, and marketing. Our spring intern will work closely with the PAS Director of Event Production and Marketing on artist and manufacturer relations and marketing and will be an integral part of the team that organizes our November 2014 international convention in Indianapolis.
PAS interns receive a $1,200 taxable stipend each month.
While PAS does not serve as a career placement service for interns, we understand that our interns need to use their experience with us to give themselves a competitive edge in their career pursuits, and we encourage and support their preparation for entering the job market or returning to graduate school. You can read about the experiences and opportunities available to PAS interns from those who know our program best, our intern alums.
We invite prospective candidates to send the following information:
• a cover letter that includes a description of the applicant’s career goals and also suggests how an internship with PAS could help to realistically promote those goals;
• a résumé of academic and work experiences (please include specific evidence of leadership skills);
• a list of persons who have agreed to provide academic and work-related recommendations, along with contact information; and
• a digital copy of a paper submitted in an upper division course.
Completed applications can be forwarded as e-mail attachments to email@example.com in a digital format. Those who prefer may send hard copies of application materials to our postal address: Intern Coordinator, Percussive Arts Society, 110 W. Washington, Suite A, Indianapolis IN 46204.
Priority will be given to candidates whose applications are received on or before Tuesday, November 19, 2013. We appreciate receiving applications well before the closing deadline.
Please encourage students in your studio or music business program to consider the advantages of six months of industry-related experience with the Percussive Arts Society. Applicants and faculty advisors are encouraged to contact us for additional information.
