As a university-oriented business, we can only hire students who are currently attending Loyola University for engineering and/or management positions.

We cannot hire Interns. Our studio cannot give college credit. What we can give is experience and knowledge, so anyone is welcome to volunteer for the studio, especially if you are working with or bringing the recording artist to the studio.

If you are a Loyola student and are interested in working with Vital Sounds, feel free to submit a resume and any other pertinent information to the e-mail address below.
