Music + Theatre Internships

A foot in the door

The word is out — Blugolds are hard-working and talented, and are highly sought by employers. The step between college and that first job is often an internship.

What kind of internships?

Students can apply for campus internships, like the current choral intern whose duties include creating promotional materials for the voice and choral areas. On a larger scale, there are more distant opportunities like our percussion student who just landed the single 6-month internship for 2016 at the Percussive Arts Society based in Indianapolis. These experiences and connections help to create a wide career network that can take you far after graduation.

Work on signature events

Every year the Jazz Festival provides multiple internship opportunities for our students. These internships typically include students in graphic design, communications, marketing, volunteer coordinating and an overall festival director. Highly prized, these opportunities give our students the kind of learning that will make them standouts in their fields.

I had the chance to intern with a creative team for an inaugural festival, and because I had the right skill set it led me to a full time job that I love.
