Internship Opportunities at Ariel Publicity

If you've been following on Twitter, you've probably read at least a few articles by Ariel Hyatt, because I share them often. Ariel and her superb team at Ariel Publicity make up one of my favorite companies in the industry and provide educational and career opportunities for indie artists. Any student interested in working in the music industry could benefit greatly by having the chance to work and learn there. Ariel is the author of multiple music industry marketing/communications books, frequent industry speaker and panelist, and contributor to Music Think Tank. So, if you are going to be in New York this fall, I highly recommend applying for the chance to be one of two new interns at this innovative company. Full info is below, including a link to apply.


Ariel Publicity is a digital music PR firm providing publicity & Internet promotion campaigns for artists, authors, and filmmakers. We understand what it takes for independent artist/entertainers (in any genre) to get the recognition, attention, and sales needed to succeed in today’s rapidly changing entertainment industry.
To succeed in any of these areas today, you have to show up where the action is: online — in the brave new world of social media. We place all of our clients on Internet radio stations, social networking sites, podcasts, blogs, vlogs, audio blogs, online music magazines, video sites, regional sites, and any other appropriate outlets. We also target relevant niche markets, exposing our clients to entirely different groups of fans.

Description:
We are seeking aggressive go-getters who are willing and eager to learn about this industry and all of the power that online PR and social media possesses. If you want to cut corners and jump through hoops for credit this is not the internship for you. We want dedicated individuals who want to be here.

We truly value our interns at Ariel Publicity. We want them to have a rich, fulfilling experience during their time here. Many companies in the music industry have their interns passing out mail and going on constant coffee-runs. Most interns at these sorts of companies never have the chance to be heard; their ideas are considered beneath the employees. That is not our philosophy and it never will be. Our interns are given a lot of responsibility and are viewed as major contributors to our firm during their time here; they are a vital part of our efforts.
This is a part-time (2 -3 days per week) unpaid internship for college-credit only.


Location: 389 12 Street • Brooklyn NY 11215 (Park Slope)
