CREW JOB: Assistant in Development
CREW JOB: Assistant in Development(Ongoing, Multiple Positions)
Prerequisites: Keen interest in marketing, journalism, or creative and persuasive pursuits. Internet literacy (you can search Google, right?). Must spell well and be “verbal”, but not like in ‘Usual Suspects.’ If you’re self-directed and expect you’ll do well for yourself later in life, start here. (Ass-kickers only need apply. Jim’s a surly bastard.)
Some people just want to rawk. And some want to… actually get sh*t done. Help Jim remember to shout “Poopy!” when necessary, and pull together the presentations to sponsors and funders that keep Big Heavy World spinning like a Phish fan. We do unique, amazing work for Vermont’s music but we’ve spent too much time building databases and pimping hella-shows and not enough time telling people how wonderful we are. Hard habit to pick up, but we’re learning.
Big Heavy World has been promoting and archiving the Burlington music scene since 1996. Our existence and success is due to participation by volunteers and interns who share our extreme enthusiasm; we simply wouldn't exist without their support.
Our internship program allows a greater level of freedom and creativity than one might expect, but also demands a high level of responsibility and dedication to each mission. As a supervised work experience for academic credit, Big Heavy World internships guarantee personal and professional development.
