Gain real world experience in music and radio

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, events, 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. 

What to expect?

KEXP internships are 6-months long and interns must have availability of 15 hours per week, during regular business hours (9am-6pm, Monday-Friday). All interns are paid $15.75/hr.

What are we looking for?

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.
