Work for!  The experience you can potentially get from here will serve you for the rest of your life in this business and industry!  And it is not like any other.  We are going to put you front and center with not only the biggest names in music, but also give you the opportunity to BE the trend-setter as you help discover new acts and bands, something that put us on the map nearly a decade ago!  We may even elevate you (pending staff levels) to a leadership position on our leadership team!

You will also be interviewing, reviewing and of course, write! No schleping behind a desk and grabbing coffee for us, which is obviously hard to do since is a pure online experience (unless you have invented a way to make and serve coffee over fiber optics or cable lines!)! 

You will get the chance to review albums before they come out, put your pulse on breaking music news, get a shot at interviewing and talking to some of the biggest names in music in person at concerts or over the phone and again, discover new music and promote them like you've never promoted them before!  This is an experience like no other!

Working for is a voluntary experience, but there is an expectation of consistent and regular contribution and we have been doing this now since 2002.   Also there is an expectation of professionalism on the job.  No outward EXTREME fangirling or boying in the field ;-)!
