Official Opinions: Stitely internships are fun!

Hey there Stitely Blogosphere! If you are a student or know any students looking for a fall internship, Stitely Entertainment has three unique internship opportunities. We have three different positions available: Event-Planning Support, Marketing and Multimedia and Live Sound Reinforcement. Each internship begins late August or early September and continues through December. You can take these internships for class credit and hours are flexible between 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday to accommodate your schedule. Bonus: We pay a small daily stipend to defray transportation cost, provide for lunch and have some left over for the weekend.   If you want to get some hands-on experience in the music and events industries, these internships are for you.  Here’s a little about each position:

-Event Planning Support: This intern assists our Event Planning Coordinator as she works with clients in preparation for their events.  Basic responsibilities include preparing musical materials such as charts, lyrics and MP3s for upcoming events, interfacing with musicians, and a few special projects.  You also have the opportunity to dabble in marketing, occasionally writing a blog post or attending events to take photos. We ask you to be in our Evanston office 20-24 hours a week and you must be able to read music in order to be considered for the position. Strong writing skills and photo/video experience are also a plus but not necessary.

-Marketing and Multimedia: While duties will vary on a project by project basis, basic responsibilities for Marketing and Multimedia Interns include taking photos and videos at a handful of events and editing and posting these media on Flickr & YouTube.  Interns also write blog posts, maintain our various social media sites and contribute ideas for new PR & marketing initiatives.  We’re looking for someone with strong writing skills who is also great at taking photos, recording videos and editing these media. A familiarity with graphic design and Mac computers is encouraged, but not necessary. We ask you to be in the office three days per week and you will need to attend a few weekend events, but these will be limited to two or three per month.

-Live Sound Reinforcement: Sound Interns assist our professional sound engineers at weddings and private events at a variety of venues throughout Chicagoland.  If you have a desire to learn the skills involved in mixing live band audio on cutting-edge sound equipment, this is a great opportunity. Additional opportunities to assist on DJ events to learn DJ skills are also available.  Most events are on Saturday afternoons and evenings so you must have weekend availability for this position.  Applicants must have a working knowledge of basic sound equipment and have regular access to a car. We are looking to hire at least three interns to work with each of our bands.

Interested?  Send your resume and cover letter that includes the position for which you are applying and why you are a good candidate to Rachel@stitely.com.  Event-Support applicants, please include your musical background in your cover letter. Sound Reinforcement applicants, please include your weekend availability and confirm access to a vehicle.  We hope to hear from you!
