Posted on October 31, 2013

Interning is an important part of obtaining your college degree. Here at Box Talent we offer 5 positions to help students gain experience of the work environment. We offer flexible hours and while the internship is not paid, there are chances to earn some money on the side!

Jacobi is one of our past interns that came back to work for us part time.

Jacobi hard at work? Or hardly working?

Here is Jacobi's story:

I am from Lawton, Oklahoma. I was selected as a Box Talent intern after applying for the marketing internship in the Spring semester of 2013 while going to school at Oklahoma Baptist University. I am now 23 years old. Currently I am in the training process here at Box Talent. I am privileged with the chance to get to work with a group of professionals who offer much that I can learn from. The holiday season gives me a chance to get my feet wet in the booking process by helping out agents with holiday parties and other seasonal events I can get involved with that will further prepare me as a booking agent. 

There were many things that I liked about Box Talent that made me want to work here after my internship. Of course being around music all day was a definite. But also the family atmosphere and professional attitude were also things that I wanted to work around. As a business management graduate, there wasn’t much better than seeing business and music blended in an enjoyable yet professional way. Not only has Box Talent been a great place to work, but it has also been considerably rewarding in terms of learning from professionals that allow me to build and grow off of in the wake of college graduation.

Jacobi was lucky to have found a place where two passions collided. We are glad to have him with us on our team and cannot wait to see him grow!
