Burns Entertainment has been the industry experts in celebrity spokesperson campaigns, endorsements, gifting, and music licensing and professional speakers for over 45 years. Burns is not a talent agent, we serve as a talent procurement partner leveraging experience and expert industry savvy to negotiate and execute deals in the entertainment and sports space.
Interns will receive hands-on training in all aspects of the sports & entertainment marketing business. Intern assignments include working in one of our four company divisions: PR/Gifting, Advertising, Celebrity Speaking Engagements or Business Development. Training will cover contracts, research methods, use of the database, as well as general office skills. In addition, you will be provided with periodic informal seminars by Burns staff members on their areas of the business.
Under my supervision, you will assist Burns executives with all aspects of PR campaigns, endorsement campaigns, speaking engagements, personal appearance and other events. You will participate in the creative side of the business by involvement in brainstorming sessions, researching celebrities and athletes for possible events and campaigns, and compiling full bios for client proposals. Also, you may assist with event/campaign logistics and some customer service tasks.
