Internship Position Available
Jobsite Theater is currently looking for an intern to work through the fall of 2012 (Aug./Sep. – Dec.) who will report directly to the Producing Artistic Director. This is an administrative internship, though there may be assignments made that are show-specific (such as prop shopping or errand running.) If time permits, a qualified applicant will be more than welcome to attend rehearsals or work in a production area to gain additional experience.
Duties will include assistance in marketing and public relations for the fall 2011 productions as well as the 2011–12 season, grant and development research and assistance, social media campaigns and other administrative assistance as needed. Applicant will need to have their own transportation and reliable computer and internet access. College students or recent high school graduates are preferred, and Jobsite is happy to work with any intern to ensure graded credit through an educational institution.
Please a current resume and a brief statement of purpose by Aug. 16.
Jobsite Theater offers internships year-round for students at all levels. Jobsite has worked with UF, USF, UCF, HCC, The Patel Conservatory and several local high schools to help student interns earn credit while working in scenic and lighting programs, assistant stage management, assistant directing and arts administration support.
Former interns have had the opportunity with us to:
- perform on stage or serve as an understudy;
- build sets and work on lights;
- serve as scene painter;
- act as an assistant stage manager;
- help with marketing and public relations campaigns;
- assist the Artistic Director and have exposure to how a small professional theater company manages day to day operations;
- assist in the retention and acquisition of season ticket holders; and
- work on fundraising efforts such as the company's annual campaign.
Some interns have moved on to paid work with us after completion of their program. Our first intern, Katrina Stevenson, now serves as our Costume Designer in residence as well as on our Board of Directors.
Internships are generally 16 weeks in length, but Jobsite will consider an eight-week program for those not seeking graded credit for their work. It is not necessary to be affiliated with an educational program to be considered for an internship.
To apply for consideration, we recommend that you at least three months prior to when you would like to start with a statement of purpose and a current theatrical resume.
Because we generally only take a select few interns at any given time, interns get a lot of indivisualized face time with our artists in a very personalized setting.
