Publishing Internships & Work Experience Bulletin:
Hello! As of February 2017, I will be posting a weekly bulletin of Publishing Internships & Work Experience across all areas of the Publishing Industry!
For those of you that don’t know I work in publishing recruitment! I am an Administrator and Social Media Coordinator, and not too long ago I was unemployed. I completed a 6-month internship at a Literary Agency and a two work experience placement at Penguin Random House! Before applying for 57 jobs – hearing back from 6 – attending 4 interviews and receiving 2 rejections! Before I got a job!
I understand that boat of looking for work and hearing time and time again: ‘You need more experience’. It’s ironic since entry-level jobs don’t usually require a minimum of 6 months experience! But publishing is highly competitive and hugely popular business! Particularly with the growth of Blogging, Booktube and Countless TV & Film adaptations of books!
So…I am going to help! As best I can!
