Careers in the Music Business

Working in the music industry is a dream job for many music fans. While many people associate the music industry with a career as a performer, there are plenty of off-stage roles as well. Like any other industry, jobs in the music industry include sales, finance, information technology, and other infrastructure roles. Unlike other industries, however, these music industry jobs provide a sense of excitement and connection to the music business. For example, a graphic designer at a record label may get the opportunity to design a multimedia campaign for their favorite artist; an IT person at a music company may get to work on the next iTunes or Napster.

And there are plenty of behind-the-scenes careers in music that are not found in other industries. Working as an agent, producer, or recording engineer provides the opportunity to find and work with new music talent.
