Winter/Spring Intern - Music Licensing/Publishing
Bank Robber MusicNew York, NY
Part Time Unpaid Internship
An internship at Bank Robber Music / Rough Trade Publishing would consist of helping in almost every facet of the company.
For BRM, an intern would be responsible for organizing; assembling and shipping regularly scheduled mailings of music and information to our most important music supervisors. This happens every week or two. That includes creating ''one-sheets,'' which are descriptions of each record that gets sent out. They will also be responsible for maintaining a number of different shared documents and keeping them up to date. These documents include dates of shows, release dates of records, contact information for both clients and supervisors as well as other information that is important to the company's functions.
An intern would assist with RTP copyright research, to ensure that the correct songwriter ownership, splits and contact information are listed on the respected PRO sites, both domestically and for other territories across the world. They will also compile and maintain a report of current domestic/international tour dates and set lists. They will be used for the collection of performance royalties.
Both BRM and RTP utilize the same legal and accounting departments. Interns will help by filing contracts, both executed and in process. They will also be asked to help with updating aging invoices in our internal database when payments are received. Along with assembling and shipping quarterly royalty mailings to clients.
An intern's duties may fluctuate and change as the semester progresses, but the above is a general idea of some of the tasks that will be expected.
We're looking for a student who is enthusiastic about the music industry, with a specialized interest in the world of licensing and publishing. We work mostly with indie rock bands, so it's always nice when an intern shares our enthusiasm for the acts that we work with (listed on both the Bank Robber Music and House of Hassle artist pages).
An intern should be very computer literate, with knowledge of the basic Microsoft Office programs (mainly Word & Excel). Knowledge of Photoshop is also good, but not required. Owning their own laptop is not required, but they will be able to work on their on computer if its their preference. They will need to know how to work on a Mac, even if they don't own one.
We are looking for an intern to work two to three days a week (Mon - Wed./Thurs), for 6-8 hours each day. Interns are not required to be enrolled in school during the semester in which they wish to intern. This internship is only available in exchange for school credit. There will be no monetary compensation… Ok maybe snacks.
