MI Connects, MI’s online talent resource, is an exclusive service for current students and alumni. Career Development receives frequent calls from talent scouts, managers, producers, booking agents, A&R representatives, potential music students and studio managers who require the services of trained musicians and engineers.
All enrolled MI students are automatically eligible to join, and members can post profiles including mp3 links, photos, videos and résumés to the MI Connects online database. Members also gain access to online job boards, a search engine exclusive to MI Connects and a community forum.
Gig opportunities are posted regularly on MI Connects job boards on the website and in school. Listings range from paying gigs, original bands showcasing for record labels and signed artists auditioning or replacing band members.
For audio engineers, opportunities range from intern and runner positions to first engineer jobs in both audio and post-production facilities. You may also receive referrals for teaching and other musical opportunities in the LA area and beyond.
All students are highly encouraged to join MI Connects while enrolled because the contacts and networking opportunities remain equally important in the years after graduation — many of MI’s success stories have come about because former students stayed in touch with each other and MI.
