One week from today, I begin my 18 week internship with Tour:Smart. I am excited to learn about the workings of the small company. During my interview, I learned that their are only two full time permanent staff members. The company utilized 8-10 interns during the summer of 2009. I do not know how many interns I will be working with this fall. During my internship, I hope to not only learn about event promotion, but also gain an insiders view on the experiences, necessities, and benefits of a well promoted tour.
A few weeks ago, I moved from small town, OH to Chicago, IL in pursuit of a career as a graphic designer in the music industry. This blog is one of twelve steps that I have established to help push my career in the right direction. This set of steps stems from my experience at Traffic Marketing, a conversation with a new friend, and the advise of a specific designing peer.
