Requirements: You must have or be in the process of completing a communications, journalism, mass media communications, or (social media) marketing degree. You must listen to EDM on a regular basis, and read EDM news on a fairly regular basis. Intern must provide his or her own computer as we are a very small business and cannot afford to loan you one. Intern will be working from home, with bi-weekly meetings at our location to talk about progress. A bonus would be if you already knew how to use WordPress, as this is the blog app we use. If not we can train you how to use it.
Tasks: You are required to send your assigned boss at least one (1) article per week, sometimes more, depending on how busy we are. We might ask you to conduct a live or phone interview with an artist, producer, or agency owner. You will monitor trends in social media, identify keywords that will draw readers to their posts, and use alerts and social media tracking tools to gather statistics regarding blog readership. You will also be asked to find videos and photographs to accompany your posts at a certain size or length. You may be required to complete a project at the end of the term (depending on term, and university.)
Skills: “Successful bloggers have good writing and editing skills and can express thoughts, ideas and information in an entertaining and easy-to-understand style. Bloggers also must know what type of information appeals to their readers, as readers only return to blogs if they think the blog has something of value to offer them,” according to U.S. News and World Report. Good research and communication skills are important. You will spend a significant of time researching ideas for blog posts and often must work with other employees and departments to get information they need to write posts.
We are looking for someone that takes the music they listen to seriously. We take our business seriously, however we also like to have fun. We attend shows all year and festivals in the summer. We have been listening and attending festivals since we were in high school. This has been our lives for a decade and we hope to find a student that loves electronic music as much as we do. Please don’t hesitate to send me an email with your resume, if you think you fit this internship.
