Shure Incorporated is accepting entries for its second annual “Get the Gig” Artist Relations internship competition; the deadline for Round One submissions is January 31, 2013. College juniors, seniors, and recent graduates from the Class of 2012, who reside in the U.S., are eligible to enter and take part in up to three rounds of competition to demonstrate why they deserve to be the next Shure Artist Relations intern.
The “Get the Gig” winner will be notified by April 8, 2013, and will complete the internship program at Shure Corporate Headquarters in Niles, Ill., from approximately May 15, 2013, to August 15, 2013. The summer 2013 program will offer one winner an “inside look” at the music industry and learn how to outfit some of today’s most talented artists and bands with the right equipment to produce the best sound possible, in the studio or onstage.
Shure Artist Relations manages the relationships between musical artists and bands and the company, providing product and technical support and assisting their front-of-house, monitor, and studio engineers as needed. Shure artists include Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Jason Mraz, Matt & Kim, Mos Def, The Band Perry, The Black Keys, and Toby Keith, among others.
During the summer, the “Get the Gig” intern’s responsibilities may include providing support for social media initiatives, helping to manage Shure artist endorsers, assisting in the evaluation of potential endorsers, working with the company to negotiate endorsement contracts, and coordinating Shure-sponsored events, including clinics and trade shows.
