The United For Opportunity/Invasion Group internship is a multiple disciplinary experience where interns will be involved in both the record label and artist management activities of the organization. The combined program of these two companies provides interns a much broader/deeper internship experience than your typical major label internship by offering greater responsibility and involvement in the day-to-day activities of the small organization of fifteen. Day to day activities include online marketing, tour marketing, street team management, retail marketing, radio promotion, publicity and more.
