"Take any opportunity you can (especially if it is a step outside your comfort zone) to meet new people and to be present. Exposure is what makes people remember you. Know what your added value is and what you can bring to the table and make that known to the people around you"

Where are you interning this summer?
Eleven Seven Music Group under 10th Street Entertainment

What have you been working on at your internship? Has it sparked an interest in a career/area of study you hadn’t already thought about? 
I have been working on tour marketing and learning about digital marketing, lifestyle branding, artist management, how to write a publicity report, press releases, how to develop a full marketing plan, and video production. This internship has introduced me to my interest in lifestyle branding specifically within tour marketing. My two major interests before this internship were simply live entertainment and branding. Learning about tour marketing has given me the opportunity to put these two together and help me realize this is what I want to be doing and what I hope to earn a career in.

Do you believe your internship experience has helped to prepare you for your future? 
My internship has helped me learn office management skills and has let me work on my interpersonal skills by getting to work with band managers, tour managers and directly with artists to understand and fulfill the needs of each moving part of the record label.

Any advice for other Lubin students looking for internships?
Networking and exposure. Take any opportunity you can (especially if it is a step outside your comfort zone) to meet new people and to be present. Exposure is what makes people remember you. Know what your added value is and what you can bring to the table and make that known to the people around you.
