Attention Portland, OR! Rise Records Is Looking For An Intern

Hey Everyone!
So this post is kind of designed towards anyone reading from Portland, OR. Apparently Rise Records is looking for an intern! Trust me, if I lived in the area, I'd be applying for this in a second, looks like a great opportunity for anyone interested in working in the entertainment/business field. The job listing states that the applicant would be responsible for a lot of seemingly random tasks a couple times a week. So yeah, typical intern work I would assume haha. Everything from coffee runs to computer spread sheets... the stuff dreams are made of, right? But on the bright side, this would look FANTASTIC on a resume, and they also claim that it COULD lead to a full time position with the label. Pretty sweet. Only troublesome catches are that you have to be 18+, and you have to live in Portland... hence my inability to apply haha. Also, the job is NOT paid.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the label, they are an Oregon based record label that started back in 1991. Their focus is primarily on what some may call "post hardcore"... basically aggressive, heavy, metal/punk. You know the stuff I'm talking about... bands with more than three words in their name, can hardly understand the words, and their T-shirts are filled with gory cartoon monsters and bright colors? Just so you know, I dont have much against this music, even though that description suggests otherwise haha. Its just the best way I know to explain the bands they have signed. Their current roster includes bands like: From First To Last, The Bled, Of Mice And Men, Piebald, The Devil Wears Prada, and Bleeding Through.

Anyone from Portland? Will you be applying? Great opportunity!
