Hello! My name is Shannon Vo and I am interning at Columbia Records under Sony Music Entertainment for my last semester at Temple University. I am interning in the Artist & Repertoire department, which is in charge of finding new talent. This is my second internship at Sony Music Entertainment. Previously, I was interning at Legacy Records in the A&R department as well. It has been an amazing experience to be able to be in New York City and intern for such an influential company for two semesters in a round. Each of my experiences at Sony Music Entertainment has been completely different as well as taught me so many valuable lessons when it comes to working in the music industry.
I’ve met a crazy amount of people, including interns and employees. Each person I have met had made a mark on me and I can’t thank them enough, especially the other interns. I’ve made so many amazing memories and it’s sad that my time at Columbia Records is coming to an end. I’m not going to lie. It’s going to be weird not getting on a megabus at 7AM to head to New York City every week, but at the same time, I’m pretty excited to sleep in. Yes, it was very difficult to travel for almost three hours, back and forth, but it was so worth it. Before senior year, I had only gone to NYC once. It’s pretty crazy, but once I stepped out of your comfort zone, my life was changed for the better.
