Summer Apprenticeship Program at Beggars Group – New York Office

Beggars Group have opened the application process for their Summer Apprenticeship Program for Summer 2024. The program will run from June 4 through August 1, excluding the week of July 1 – 5.

The position is based in our Soho office in New York City. This is a paid position at $16 per hours. You will need to have the right to work in the US to apply.You will be expected to be in the New York office Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 10 am to 6:30 pm.

This session will focus primarily on our Marketing and Digital/Physical Operations Departments but will give you exposure to Radio Promotions, Publishing, and other support departments within Beggars. This apprenticeship will also give you opportunities to start to build a network of contacts. Please note that this program will give you an insight into working in a range of different departments at Beggars but is not an A&R focused opportunity.

To apply:

This is a resume and cover letter free application. You don’t need to have any previous experience working in music to apply to this program – in fact, we strongly encourage people who have no music industry experience to apply. We just want to know about your passion for music and why you want to get started working in the industry.

The application process will be split into two stages. For stage one, we’d like to hear your responses to the three questions below. You can submit your answers as either written responses or voice notes (no longer than 500 words or 3 minutes for each question), and send them to usjobs@beggars.com with the details below:

Name:
Contact email:
Mobile number:

1) “Why do you want to pursue a career in the music industry? Do you have a dream role or career path?” (500 words/3 mins)
2) “What do you hope to achieve from interning at Beggars?” (500 words/3 mins)
3) “Tell us about one of your favorite albums or one of the best gigs or festivals you’ve been to, and why it meant something to you” (500 words/3 mins)

If successful, you’ll be invited to stage two which will be a research/presentation task and interview.

Please don’t send us your resume or a cover letter as this won’t be counted towards your application. Please also make sure you stay within the word/time limit stated for your answers. Any applications exceeding these limits will not be considered.

You must be 18 or over in order to participate in the Summer Apprentice Program. We welcome applications from everyone, whether you’ve recently finished school, you’re thinking of a career change, or you’ve just always wanted to know more about jobs within the music industry.

Closing date for applications: April 19, 2024
