Do you have experience putting together pitch decks? Are you familiar with writing proposals? Do you have dreams of working with one of the biggest names in music? Then you need to go to Chance the Rapper’s Twitter page, like, right now.
On Monday, the Chicago artist/philanthropist went to Twitter looking for an intern with a specific set of skills. The tweet didn’t provide many details and, therefore, was met with several big questions: What kind of projects will the intern work on? Is the gig paid? Can the intern receive college credit? Despite the vagueness of the position, fans rushed to submit their candidacy—many of whom confused pitch decks (visual presentations that sell a product, service, etc.) with the backyard structures.
Again, it’s unclear if this internship will be for Chance’s music ventures or his philanthropic work, though the "pitch decks" mention seems to favor the latter. Earlier this month, the rapper donated $1 million to Chicago Public Schools. The contribution was to help the school system’s $215 million budget shortage.
“This isn't about politics, this isn't about posturing,” Chance said during a speech at Westcott Elementary. “This is about taking care of the kids.”
