We're growing like mad and we need some interns!
We're currently hiring interns in our editorial, marketing and art departments. If you've got a background in journalism, marketing, promotions, graphic design, website design, or photography then we want to hear from you!

All positions come with exclusive access to the music and entertainment industries and look great on the resume. Internships are unpaid, but many of our past interns have gone on to become fully-salaried employees in the company. We prefer candidates who are currently enrolled in a two or four year college, though we'll make exceptions if you've got the talent. Internships typically last for a single school year, but can be extended for people who impress and deliver.

If you're interested in becoming a SouthernPlug intern, email your cover letter, resume, and portfolio to titled (INTERNSHIP).
