how easy is it to work with tiny music labels during FWT? Would I just emailing them saying "what's up can I like help you with anything you need for some time?" I am just really confused how to go about asking when it's a place so small that doesn't normally take on interns (likely)
It’s always worth emailing a place to see if they’d be interested in having an intern for seven weeks. (Maybe be a bit more formal than “hey what’s up?”) You may be rejected a few times, and that’s okay. For both of my FWTs, I’ve worked with places that wouldn’t normally take on interns for such a short period of time, but I would say that they both worked well for both me and the organizations. My advice would be to start early. Maybe send out a few emails in late August or early in the fall to feel out if any organizations are interested in taking on an intern. Also, making an appointment with the FWT office can be helpful in figuring out the best way to reach out to potential employers (i.e. email or phone call). Hope this helps!
