Orlando Philharmonic Internships

Are you a college senior or recent graduate considering a career in arts or nonprofit administration? Orlando Philharmonic internships are in-depth “on-the-job” experiences that help prepare you to enter the field after college.

During your semester-long experience, you will work both individually and as part of a team to support the orchestra’s day-to-day operations, interact with patrons, donors, sponsors, arts and community leaders, and help plan and execute at least one large-scale project or event. Every internship includes 400 hours of professional level work beneath a department director, and countless opportunities to utilize and grow your specific knowledge and skills.

INTERNSHIP AREAS INCLUDE:

  • Marketing & Communications 
  • Development & Special Events 
  • Education & Community Engagement 
  • Orchestra Operations 

INTERNSHIPS ARE OFFERED FOR THESE TERMS:

  • Summer (mid-May – Sept 1) Application deadline April 7, 2015
  • Fall (mid-Sept – mid-Dec) Application deadline July 21, 2015
  • Spring (February – mid-May) Application deadline Dec 22, 2015

HOURS

Interns work approximately 30 hours per week, divided between regular Orlando Philharmonic administrative office hours (Monday-Friday 9:30-5:00), and additional night and weekend events.

QUALIFICATIONS

All interns must have reliable transportation and dress in a business-appropriate manner. Additional qualifications are specified by each department (see the description for each internship).

COMPENSATION

Interns are eligible to receive two complimentary tickets to all Orlando Philharmonic events occurring during their internship term. A $500 stipend is paid upon successful completion of the 400 hour internship (after a timesheet and reflection letter are submitted). Additionally, the orchestra provides up to $100 toward professional development courses at Rollins Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership Center. Interns are encouraged to work with their department director to select 1-2 courses that support their career goals, and complete the course before the end of the internship.

ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

Copies of special projects completed during your internship may be incorporated into your professional portfolio. Interns also receive a letter of recommendation and evaluation from their supervisor at the end of the term. If interning for college credit, interns are responsible for working with their education institution to complete and submit necessary paperwork.
