So… you want to be in the music business? There are a lot of you out there. I know this because I own a music PR firm and every time we put out a call for interns or jobs, we get somewhere between 100 – 250 resumes. Once upon a time, I was just like you- dying to follow my passion and aggressively trying to land a job in the industry of my dreams. It was a humbling and, at times, humiliating exercise so this dear young aspiring music business mogul is for you. Interns are much needed in every facet of the industry, and most of my music industry friends (myself included) started out as unpaid interns back in their day and we leveraged our unpaid internships into paying jobs.
If you live in or near New York or LA, this guide will be easy to follow step by step. But if you don’t, do not fret. You will be amazed at how many small music companies are thriving in practically every city and state.
