In mid-April we caught up with a former intern at a national orchestra who has managed to land a job with the same company he interned for. This is what he had to say about his experiences in the education and fundraising departments.
Q: Where are you working now?
A: I’m working for an Orchestra.
Q: And what do you do?
A: I work in the education department.
Q: Brilliant, how did you get that job?
A: I started off as an intern in the fundraising department. And I soon realised that I didn’t want to do fundraising so I asked to help out in music education whilst I was doing my internship. Then a part-time role came up. So when I finished my internship I started doing that and I never left.
