Shure Microphones annouces the winner of the “Get The Gig” competition.NILES, Ill., May 8, 2013—Shure Incorporated today announced the winner of the Company’s second annual “Get the Gig” internship competition. After a process of three rounds of reviews, Truman University student Brooke Giddens has been selected to join Shure as the Company’s Artist Relations intern from May through August 2013.


“Once again, we went through a lengthy review process to find the right person for one of the best summer internships on the planet,” said Cory Lorentz, Artist Relations Manager at Shure. “For someone interested in getting their foot in the door of the music industry, I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say this is their dream job. And, believe me…it is a job. The ‘Get the Gig’ intern will have to work hard, but we feel that Brooke is up to the task and we look forward to welcoming her into the Shure family.”


This summer, as the “Get the Gig” Artist Relations intern, Brooke will support Shure by assisting with the execution of social media campaigns and managing positive relationships with Shure artist endorsers through personal contact and product support. She will also help coordinate Shure-sponsored events such as artist clinics and trade shows.

“Given my passion for music, I felt like the ‘Get the Gig’ program was designed just for me. This opportunity means everything, and I’ve never been more pumped to go to work,” said Giddens. “This summer is going to be an incredible learning experience—another step toward achieving my future career goals. I can’t wait to understand the music industry more, seeing what really goes on behind–the-scenes, and to learn from the Shure Artist Relations team.”
