Shure Incorporated, a leading manufacturer of microphones and audio electronics based in Niles, Ill., launches its “Get the Gig” Artist Relations internship competition. Now accepting entries for the summer 2012 program, Shure will select one winner. The chosen intern will gain real-world exposure to the engineering design and marketing of Shure’s latest products and learn how to outfit today’s talent with the right gear to produce the best sound possible, in the studio or onstage.

The Shure Artist Relations Department manages the relationships between bands and the company, including—but not limited to—providing gear support, technical advice, and assisting in artist development. During the summer session, intern responsibilities may include providing support for social media initiatives; helping manage Shure artist endorsers; assisting in the evaluation of potential endorsers; working with the company to negotiate endorsement contracts; and coordinating Shure-sponsored events, including clinics and trade shows.

Current Shure endorsers include Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Jason Mraz, Matt & Kim, Mos Def, and The Black Keys, among many others.

College juniors, seniors, and recent graduates from the class of 2011 are eligible to enter and take part in up to three rounds of competition to demonstrate why they deserve to be the next Shure Artist Relations intern.

Shure will notify the “Get the Gig” winner—and next Shure intern—by April 13, 2012. The chosen intern will complete the internship program from approximately May 15, 2012, to August 15, 2012.
