Girl Germs is looking for an intern!

If you’re a fan of the show and want to help make it even better, here’s your chance.

Specific duties will be tailored to the intern’s strengths, interests and experience, but may include:

  • Street teaming and assisting with marketing
  • Artist research
  • Requesting music from labels and promoters
  • Submitting event information to local media
  • Contributing articles to Girl Germs blog
  • Assisting with social media
  • Assisting with show production and audio editing
  • Assisting with event planning
  • Maintaining Girl Germs concert calendar
  • Interest in women’s studies, communications, marketing/PR, journalism, music or a related field
  • Adept at social-media use (Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook)
  • Reliable and dependable with excellent follow-through
  • Ability to work independently with minimal supervision
  • Attention to detail
  • Available 5 hours per week
  • Familiarity with artists and genres played on Girl Germs (examples of past shows here)
Bonus qualifications (any of these skills is definitely helpful, but not necessarily required):
  • Writing skills
  • Street-teaming, marketing, promotions or PR experience
  • Graphic and/or web design experience (photo editing, basic layout skills, HTML/CSS)
  • Music business or event-planning experience
  • Knowledge of Twin Cities music scene
  • Basic audio editing/production experience
  • Knowledge of feminist media outlets and culture
What we can offer you in return:
  • Experience in the music/podcast/blogging business
  • Exposure to great music
  • A great reference if the internship goes well
  • Assistance in obtaining college credit for the internship
  • A non-traditional work environment (no schlepping to an office necessary)
  • Occasional material perks (such as concert tickets or music)

Students, as well as college graduates, are welcome to apply. The internship entails a commitment of about 5 hours per week for 3 months, potentially longer. Please note this is an unpaid internship (believe us, we’d pay you if we could) and that both male and female applicants are invited to apply.

To apply, send a resume, cover letter and your top 5 favorite female musicians/bandsĀ by JUNE 1, 2011 to girlgermsradio[at]gmail[dot]com. We’d like the intern to start in early June. Good luck!
