WMG US Internships

Warner Music Group’s Internship Program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to gain real world experience in the music industry. This multidimensional, educational program begins by matching interns to specific departments across WMG, based on their interests, for a semester-long internship. WMG offers internships all year long in each the summer, fall and spring seasons.

Upon joining our team, interns are fully immersed in the day-to-day activities of their department, participate in inter-department networking and learn directly from industry professionals. WMG interns are further exposed to the broader music industry environment by attending keynote speaker forums and educational workshops, and collaborate with one another on educational projects that address real business issues.

Warner Music Group is proud of its intern program, the professional development we offer to our WMG students, and the intern alumni network we’ve built across the country.

  • Joey A.

    “I had two internships at WMG - both in A&R. I learned so much about what to look for in a song, what differentiates a good artist from a great artist, and the best ways to search for undiscovered talent.”

  • Adriana B.
