KEXP’s internship program seeks to provide interns from historically under-invited communities with hands-on experience in the nonprofit arts sector. Our program is designed to develop and equip emerging leaders interested in furthering their careers in a broad array of fields including music programming, production, events, business support and software development.
Our interns learn skills in business communication, project management, problem-solving, audio technology, database management and more. These skills and experiences offer our interns a unique ground-level glimpse of the day-to-day life of a community-supported arts organization, while offering relationship building and networking opportunities with individuals throughout the music industry.
2023 Internship Program Update:
The application portal will open the second week of January, 2023. All position information will be available then - stay tuned!
Applications are accepted only via the application portal. Applications, resumes, cover letters, and letters of recommendation are not accepted via email.
KEXP internships are 6-months long and occur during the period of April - November. Interns must have availability of 15 hours per week during regular business hours (9am-6pm, Monday-Friday).
All interns are paid $22/hr.
Interns must have legal authorization to work in the United States. We depend on interns to determine their legal right to work in the U.S.
Interns must live in the Seattle area.
We look for diverse individuals who are motivated team players, excellent communicators, and most importantly are passionate about KEXP’s mission and have a fanatical love of music. KEXP’s internship program is committed to creating a diverse and welcoming workplace. We believe that having interns with diverse backgrounds enables KEXP to better meet our mission and serve music-loving communities around the world. People of color, women, and LGBTQIA+ individuals are strongly encouraged to apply.
