The SPARS Event Internship Program will allow current students and recent graduates the opportunity to meet SPARS members, tour successful SPARS member facilities and interact with respected industry luminaries. Besides these advantages, the program exposes applicants to one of the main reasons for SPARS membership – access.
Those selected for internship for a particular event, will also have access to the SPARS Board of Directors as an additional source for networking, mentor ship and encouragement. Although the selection of event internships is open to all current and recent graduates of recording programs, SPARS Education Member schools will be given priority in the selection process. If you are an Education Member considering renewal or an institution considering membership, this benefit can be an important reason for joining.
Duties will include assisting the SPARS staff, members and Board of Directors with event related duties. Some of these duties include setting up for the event, assisting with handouts, providing direction to attendees, running recording and video equipment, manning kiosks and other information related activities. Currently SPARS is accepting internships for the following events.
AES Convention, NY, 2011, October 19 – 23, 2011
NAMM Convention, Anaheim, CA, January 19 – 22, 2012
In the future, as part of its upcoming Mentoring Initiative, SPARS will be expanding the Internship Program to include additional opportunities. Stay tuned for more announcements.
