Music Industry Job Board (3/2/14)

Hello and welcome to the official blog of Haulix. One of the questions we are asked most often on this blog is whether or not we know of any job openings within the music industry. We try our best to inquire during interviews with our guests, but recently we decided to kick things up a notch and launch a column specifically dedicated to new opportunities around the music business. It’s called the Music Industry Job Board, and this is our fourth installment.
