Venue Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • Chicago, IL

What I liked

I liked that I was able to spend time in the Live Nation Chicago office and could attend meetings to learn more about the company does. My job took me to concerts a few times a week so I was able to attend shows and interact with guests each night. Music is my greatest passion so being able to experience live music all summer was a privilege.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to spend more time in the office with other departments like booking, marketing and touring. I was able to sit in on marketing meetings and meet with top Live Nation people, but I would have liked to have more exposure to what the other interns were doing each day but this wasn't a priority of my supervisors. There should have been more opportunities for interns to network and meet each other.

Advice

Do what you can to be exposed to more aspects of what Live Nation does, ask those around you to help coordinate meeting times.

Site Operations

May - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

I loved that the job allowed me to make lots of friends, meet people in the music industry, and see the operations that go on behind the scenes.

What I wish was different

It was an outside position during the Nashville summer meaning it was extremely hot. It would be nice if they had fans for employees.

Be sure to network with everyone there! You never know who has the connections you need.

Sponsorship and Media Intern

June - August 2019 • Los Angeles, CA

What I liked

This internship was the best. I really liked how inclusive the staff was that I was interning for and how they were constantly encouraging me and the other interns as well as giving us feedback.

What I wish was different

If I could wish anything different from this internship, I think it would be that it was a longer term. However, the reason why that was not possible is because of the length of the summer term. So, that being said, there really is not much that I would change about the internship.

Advice

One piece of advice that I would share about this experience is to not get discouraged with competition. Do your best and show what you are made of.

College Associate Intern

June - August 2018 • Irvine, CA

What I liked

Great experience. Cool and different job opportunity.

What I wish was different

I had to commute for my position and it was incredibly expensive and tiring. I wish there were a way for Cal Poly to connect with other schools to have us stay in the dorms and vise versa.

Country Nation Intern

June - August 2018 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

Wonderful team, very inclusive and a unique job experience. Lots of traveling, long hours, but worth every second of it.

What I wish was different

I wish I had a more specific department that I worked with all summer instead of jumping around into different ones.

Advice

Do not expect it to be like any other job you've ever done. It's longer, harder, and more intense than any other job i'd ever done.

Nothing! This internship has made it clear to me that I want to go into concert promotions in the future.

Take advantage of every opportunity you get - there’s tons of shows to work at and lots of phone Q&A’s with industry execs. Embracing those opportunities helped me learn a lot about the industry.
