Ashley Brown, recent Music Business graduate and former intern at Keep the Edge Studios, (an upstart recording studio in Quincy, MA) tells Berklee Blogs how her internship helped her determine and prepare for her future career
I’m proud to say that I’ve finally completed my internship at Keep the Edge Studios and my last semester at Berklee! Graduating from college seems so surreal, but I’m so excited for life post-Berklee. For all of you out there who are wondering about interning, here’s a little reflective blog post about my experience with Berklee’s internship program, and my time at Keep the Edge.
My supervisor, Keith, was so great during my internship. He gave me tasks to work on and trusted me enough to complete them in a timely manner without having to micromanage me. Being a music business major and concentrating on management has opened my eyes to different types of management styles, and being at this internship has helped me figure out what type of management style I would like to adopt for myself in the future. It was really refreshing being in a professional environment where my supervisor was cool enough to trust me to do the tasks laid out for me, without having to breathe down my neck to make sure I was doing them. I had a lot of freedom and it felt really nice.
