Jeff McClusky & Associates – a leading artist development and major label radio promotion firm – is recruiting a Manager for its intern program for Spring and Summer 2018.
Based in Chicago, the company’s client list covers every major music label, including Warner Music Group, Sony Music Group, Universal Music Group and all their subsidiaries.
It also has ongoing business relationships with many independent labels and artists, and specialises in independent-alternative, singer-songwriter and hip hop artist development.
The summer intern program WeLaunch has served more than 100 students over the past 20 years, many of whom graduated to careers in the music business.
Jeff McClusky & Associates prides itself in the ability to assist in career placement long after interns have finished a summer or other semester term at JMA.
This individual should possess in-depth experience in the music industry and a background in teaching, or related experience.
The successful candidate will work with Jeff and our executive team, including Ryan Carey and Scott Sheldon, in developing this year’s curriculum, scheduling activities and selecting our applicants and studies.
Five to 10 years experience in radio promotion and/or artist management are critical, as is the ability to assemble a 12-week program that runs three full days a week.
Students will study via complete music industry immersion in a General Studies class format.
They will also get to listen to renowned industry speakers, take field trips to music festivals and other Chicago music business entities, and choose a “major” in one of the study concentrations offered.
Students must be able to receive semester credit from their academic institution.
