Intern with REVERB This Summer
Many of you know me from managing REVERB’s volunteer program, but did you know that I also manage our internship program?! That’s right – each summer we invite three amazingly talented college students (or recent graduates) to join us in our Portland, Maine headquarters to learn about the inner-workings of REVERB. We also look for one intern to join us each fall and spring. Interns help us make phone calls, do research, take on fun projects, and best of all – work onsite at many shows!
Below is detailed information about the program and how to apply. If this opportunity would be a good fit for you or someone you know, we’d love to hear from you!
