As of recently, the dance music industry has its own Linkedin with LiiLT. The free to use membership site combines a job and college course search engine with a full social media platform, creating an extensive resource for those seeking a career in electronic music, a job market that seems to still grow exponentially. Dublin-based LiiLT is a service set up by muliple music and media-related businesses, like Viacom18 / Vh1 Supersonic, Ministry of Sound, Beatport, the SAE Institute.
While the platform is still in its beta stage, LiiLT did already attracted over a thousand members across the world. So a clear sign has already been given that there is a serious need for a digital job and educational marketplace for this sector, especially since there is a misconceived sense of undersupply of dance music-related jobs sometimes, or that jobs are only gained by knowing the right people. LiiLT is striving towards actually catering to every possible job in dance music, from booking agents, club mangers, to technicians and sound engineers to festival volunteers.
Users can join for free and immediately post or apply for jobs and courses, search through directories and network with other users – all at no cost. Paid services exist in the form of a premium ‘professional’ membership level and premium positions in the listings pages but all core functions of LiiLT can be enjoyed free of charge by all members.
Commenting on the partnership with LiiLT, Jaideep Singh, Senior Vice President of LIVE Viacom18 said
“Our partnership with LiiLT enables us to provide an impetus to young music talent and provide them with the ideal opportunity to build their capabilities and charter their musical journey. LiiLT has the potential to fuel the growth of the electronic music industry by getting the right talent to the right places”.
