SM Internship
« on: Aug 16, 2006, 05:55 pm »
I've been offered an internship in stage management/production and am wondering if anyone else has done this? I'm mainly wondering about the schedule and whether or not it might be flexible, as I have a potential conflict with classes.
I'm new to SM and am looking for a bit more information before I decide whether or not to accept the internship. That being said, if there were no conflicts I think I would take it and run!  :)
Thanks!

I'd say talk to both sides about the potential conflict.  It is possible that they understand and the class teacher may get out of some classes since you are working an internship that has to deal with your education as well, I know when I was in college I could have.  If you think SMing would be something you would be interested in then an internship is a great way to learn some more.  I graduated college a year ago and come this October I will be interning at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago, even though I've done a lot of SMing in college (and a little since) its still gonna be a great learning experience interms of me seeing how equity works more up close plus a good line on the resume and networking capabilities.

So yeah just talk to the people about the potential conflict sometimes they will be willing to work with you to make it all work out.

Ne honest about your conflicts from the start - - - they may be able to work around it - you never know.

Having done a few internships I know they all have slightly different hours depending on the company.  That said, they have always been able to work around some conflicts that I was open about.  Even regular jobs are willing to work around some conflicts as long as your honest from the start and the right fit for the job.

Congrats on your internship offer and best of luck!
