A2IM Intern Program – Now accepting rock stars and roadies alike!

Are you a student with a (un)healthy obsession with the music industry? Are you willing to get your hands dirty to learn about the in’s and out’s? Do you want to work with super cool people? And of course, do you love music?

A2IM now accepting applications for our intern program and if you answered yes to all of the above, we want to hear from you! We are looking for interns for the following departments –

  • Membership (associate and record labels)
  • Marketing
  • Tech

Why go with us? Good question!

  • Get to attend some of the hottest music events in the country
  • Meet industry titans and musicians alike
  • Learn about every side of the business from professionals who have seen, and heard, it all
  • Lots and lots of cookies
  • Trust that we all know how and enjoy getting our own coffee/bagels/dry cleaning/sex, drugs, and rock and roll

And more!

We are looking for applicants who can work a minimum of 20-25 hours per week and can commit to at least 4 months or the full term of their university internship program.

Your duties and responsibilities will evolve throughout your tenure so be ready to hit the ground running no matter what the day throws at you.

See below for the details and reach out if you are ready to hang with the best. While our internship program runs and accepts applications year-round, we are looking for people to start ASAP.
