Record Label 300 Entertainment has recently created the Intern to CEO Program to help selected students who are interested in the music industry learn more and thrive. Their hope is that HBCU students apply and step up to the plate! As we all know, 300 Entertainment is an edgy independent record label that’s snatched attention ever since it came on the scene eight years ago.
The label is a testament that applying hard work and dedication will take you further than you could ever imagine. 300 co-founder and industry innovator Kevin Liles himself even started from the bottom in the music industry as an unpaid Def Jam Records intern to the executive vice president at Warner Music Group. 300 Entertainment focuses heavily on artist development and streaming. 300 boasts heavy-hitter artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Young Thug, Gunna, Fetty Wap, Lil Keed, Jerrika Karlae, Famous Dex, Shy Glizzy, Tee Grizzley, and more.
So what will it take to be a part of this opportunity? You will need to be a current US student in a 4-year degree program. You will be asked to submit your transcripts as proof that you have been enrolled for the Fall 2020 semester. You will also need to submit a 1-3 minute video prompt that is thoughtful but short. The question to be answered is: “Describe a goal of yours whether personal, professional, or academic and tell us how you plan to make it happen.”
Out of all the applicants, they are looking for 3 strong and determined winners! Prizes will include a $1,000 Apple gift card, a $500 Amazon gift card, and copy of Kevin Liles’ book “Make It Happen.” Although the gift cards have a large credit on them, they say one of the most valuable things on earth is time. The most significant gift of this program will be the one-on-one session with a 300 label entertainment executive!
With COVID-19 grounding a lot of plans, it’s important that we take the time to consider what we are doing to reach our goals and dreams. If you think this opportunity speaks to your dreams or career path, we encourage you to apply.
The deadline is Friday, November 27, 2020. Be sure to apply ASAP here if you think you have what it takes!
