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, development, 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.
KEXP internships are 6-months long and interns must have availability of 15-20 hours per week (depending on the internship), during regular business hours (9am-6pm, Monday-Friday). All interns are paid a stipend equivalent to $15/hr.
KEXP interns are on-boarded as a cohort and required to engage in cohort activities throughout their six months with us, including but not limited to:
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.
