Through a collaboration with Black Music Action Coalition in the US, the program will award five recent undergraduates a three-month paid internship at Audiomack across various departments, including marketing, creative design, editorial and content strategy, and content operations.
The program will also offer free mentorship from key figures in the industry, including Lil Wayne’s former manager, Cortez Bryant, and Amina Diop of Republic Records. The “Black Music Executives Are The Future” push was officially announced on Wednesday and is powered by Culture Fusion Agency,
“It’s disheartening to see that, of the 70 major and independent music companies, only 4.2% of high-level executives are Black,” stated Jason Johnson, Audiomack VP, marketing & brand strategy
Anyone wanting to apply for the program must create an Audiomack account, upload their resume, specify their desired internship department and follow Audiomack, BMAC, and Culture Fusion Agency on all social media platforms. They must then submit a 300-word essay explaining how they plan to use the program to further their career.
All applications must be in by March 4th, with winners being declared March 14th for internships, which will begin on March 21st.
