NFA internships are a great opportunity for undergraduate or graduate students to gain valuable experience in arts nonprofit administration. The NFA offers a fun, supportive environment for interns to build skills and explore career opportunities in the
music world and beyond.
The NFA offers two internship programs: Office Internships and Convention Internships.
Office internships are available year-round, and students may apply at any time. Music students, flute students, and arts administration students are especially encouraged to apply. Interns are expected to work a minimum of 6 hours per week - the NFA team works remotely due to COVID19. These internships typically run 10 weeks. Hours are flexible and internships can be extended.
Office interns will gain hands-on experience in a variety of key areas, including member services, convention planning, marketing, archival research, general administration, and publishing.
Interns should be hard working, detail oriented, and have a positive attitude. Strong interpersonal communication, writing, editing, research, and organizational skills are required. Graphic Design skills are a plus. Candidates should have proficiency in Microsoft Word, Excel, internet research, and social media, as well as the ability to meet deadlines and effectively manage time while accomplishing multiple tasks.
To apply, please submit your resume and a short cover letter telling us your availability, why you are interested in working for the National Flute Association, and what unique talents you will bring to our team to membership manager Lilly Mauti at email@example.com. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. The NFA welcomes applications from candidates of diverse backgrounds.
NFA Convention Interns will have the opportunity to learn about the National Flute Association during the four days of the 2021 Virtual Convention. The interns will facilitate online sessions on the convention platform and will interact with presenters
and NFA staff and volunteers. Students will gain valuable work experience while enjoying flute music from around the world.
Applicants must be undergraduate or graduate students. Students majoring in flute with an emphasis in performance, music education, music theory, music composition, music therapy, music business, or arts administration will be given priority. Interns must hold current membership with the National Flute Association (see details below). All work in 2021 is remote.
Interns who successfully complete a 2021 Convention Internship will receive priority consideration for internships at the 50th Anniversary Convention in Chicago in August 2022.
The NFA welcomes applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds.
The window has closed for submitting convention internship applications. Applicants will be contacted by the
end of May.
Final selections will be made after a round of Zoom interviews. Applicants will be required to sign a letter of intent and will be provided with regular updates and pertinent information regarding the position.
Interns will be able to attend sessions at the convention; shifts will be assigned to enable students to attend concerts, workshops, and other sessions.
Interns will be given complimentary virtual convention registration. Interns will have the opportunity to gain work experience in the field of music; they will get to network with the greatest flutists, composers, and pedagogues from all over the world.
Please send all inquiries to Lilly Mauti at firstname.lastname@example.org and Kristin Pagels at email@example.com.
