Fri, November 15, 2013
The internship program of the Texas Music Office (TMO) in the Office of the Governor offers college students the opportunity to develop a working knowledge of the music industry. The TMO seeks students with excellent communication skills who want to learn how the music industry works, and who want to contribute to the TMO's research web publishing and marketing efforts.
TMO internship recipients are required to work at least 10 (and as many as 30) hours each week researching and marketing Texas music businesses, events and talent. Responsibilities include: interviewing Texas music businesses owners; developing business statements based on these interviews; inputting information into the TMO's databases using FileMaker Pro 5.0 software; responding to information requests from industry professionals and the general public; and researching Texas music on the web. Interns also assist TMO staff with administrative duties approximately 35 percent of the time. TMO internships are on a volunteer basis.
The Texas Music Office is the information clearinghouse for the Texas music industry, and is the sister office to the Texas Film Commission. Our website contains 15,089 business, band or event listings totaling 2,744 printed pages and attracts more than 400,000 unique visitors annually. Internship recipients work closely with the TMO staff in compiling and publishing this information, and your work is credited.
Getting started in the Texas music business isn't easy. TMO internships are an excellent way to become aware of important professional contacts who make music their business.
**TMO fellowships often qualify for college credit with instructor approval**
