We work hard. We work smart. Our expectations are high. Only apply if you're very interested. Please email us a cover letter that describes your passion for the industry and an updated resume that highlights any experiences you have, and/or focuses on your interests.

Words From The Front
Hear directly from some of those who have dedicated their time and talents to Red Giant in the past in order to expand their knowledge base about the dynamic world of Entertainment.
Interning with Red Giant was a great experience. I learned so much about the music industry and honed my research skills. Although it was virtual, I was able to reach out whenever I needed to Robert or other employees to get help with something I didn’t understand. The culture at Red Giant was not competitive at all, in fact everyone brought each other up to the best they can be. It was a lot of manageable work that was intriguing to do because it was within the Entertainment industry.
Robert was extremely knowledgeable and guided me through my internship. He gave me things to do that challenged me and helped me out when I didn’t know what I was doing. He was very approachable and available.
Although learning and working virtually may sometimes bring difficulties, Red Giant creates projects for you that allow you to expand your knowledge on whatever your area of expertise is, as well as assign tasks to learn something new (and how to do it).
I really enjoyed my time at the Red Giant Rights Group. I gained a lot of essential knowledge, especially since I was new to the music industry going in. It took time and dedication, but reflecting on my time now, it was worth it. I was nervous that I wasn’t going to get the full benefits of the internship, with it being remote, but I stand corrected. I am more excited now than ever, knowing what I have learned from my time with the Red Giant Rights Group, to enter into the world of the music industry.
Working with Red Giant Rights Group opened my eyes to the world of the music industry from a perspective like no other. Certainly hard work, but I learned so much throughout my time working with Robert. With the ability to work remotely and on my own time, I was to able enjoy a college summer and still work in a meaningful internship, providing the skills needed to work in the music industry.
