Interns at Big Hassle Media are immersed in the New York office's publicity efforts, working with each publicist on current clients and projects from music research, contact acquisition, reporting, and sometimes even tour pitching. In addition, interns learn important administrative skills in the publicity industry such as press clippings, industry news and important mailings for clients. By the end of an internship, interns should have a full understanding of a press and promotional campaign for an artist or festival and the process in which artists are placed into different press outlets whether on a national or regional basis. Interns will learn the process from video premieres to album reviews, interview scheduling and tour press.
For BHM, an intern would be responsible for organizing; assembling and shipping regularly scheduled mailings of music and information to our most important journalists. 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 journalists as well as other information that is important to the company's functions. Intern swill also assemble coverage reports and pitching target lists for different artists. And of course, interns will be a valued source of musical opinions and sounding boards for projects.
