Jobs & Internships

Experience for Aspiring Music/Arts/Marketing Professionals

NAMA is seeking an intern who is interested in learning about arts and music marketing, and gaining experience in the field. You will become familiar with marketing, public relations, social media for a concert and branding, and will experience an emphasis in fundraising, special events and budget management.

Internship is part-time (20-30 hours per week), unpaid opportunity that is intended to complement a student’s program of study or other employment. Some of the intern’s hours may involve nights and weekends. Upon acceptance, interns develop a personalized schedule based on their availability. Internship is available starting in June 2013 and culminating in the fall of 2013 after our first ever benefit concert event FishStock.


Interns have the opportunity to gain valuable career experience. Academic credit for college or university is possible upon request, however, because NAMA is not an accredited higher education institution, college credit must be granted by the intern’s current college or university.

Primary internship responsibilities and activities include the following, and special projects as assigned: 

  • Effectively working with staff and volunteer on multiple special projects
  • Exposure to a non-profit organization
  • Assistance at special events
  • Providing superior service to donors, patrons and sponsors
