POSITION: WFMT Development Internship
Thank you for your interest in becoming an intern at 98.7WFMT, Chicago's Classical Music Experience. The program is designed to provide meaningful hands-on experience in radio broadcasting while accommodating the needs and wishes of the participants.
- WFMT offers internships year-round. Length of internship and hours per week are negotiable, but we prefer that an intern be able to spend at least two days per week in the office.
- This is an unpaid internship. WFMT will work with schools for student interns receiving credit, but receiving credit is not required.
- Interns at WFMT are assigned an internship coordinator who will work with you to structure the internship to help you develop the skills in your chosen area. Our internships are very flexible and allow for a wide range of experiences. However, we’d prefer interns that are open to working on a wide range of projects.
Students of any major are encouraged to apply but an interest in classical music would be recommended. Good written and verbal communications skills are essential, as is an interest in development. Some fundraising experience would be helpful.
Possible learning opportunities include, but are not limited to assisting with on-air pledge drives, donor event involvement and planning, participating in the membership renewal and gift acknowledgement process, researching donors for cultivation and fundraising, and creating and researching new benefits for the donor membership card, and interacting with donors. The staff at WFMT will mold an internship to meet the applicant's interests and desired skills.
