Internship Program

The internship program at The Harry Fox Agency offers both undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to learn about the music publishing business from the publisher’s perspective. Interns work alongside HFA employees and produce quality work by assisting employees with their day to day responsibilities and working on multiple projects.  

Types of Internships


The summer internship program is a comprehensive full-time, 10-week program where interns learn the nuts and bolts about the music publishing industry. Interns are exposed to HFA’s core business model and assist with issuing mechanical licenses, collecting and distributing royalties and responding to general client inquiries. Interns earn a stipend upon completion of the program.
