An internship in our acquisitions department is a great opportunity for someone with editorial and/or journalism skill who wants to gain valuable hands-on experience in publishing. You’ll learn about the acquisitions process through assisting in reading and evaluating manuscripts, participating in meetings, entering and processing contracts, as well as updating sales figures to be used in title review consideration.
The typical internship requires a commitment of 10 to 15 hours per week through the summer semester. The internship will be scheduled during operating hours—8 a.m. through 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Preference will be given to students who can schedule 3-4 hour shifts. Applicants must be currently enrolled in a degree-granting program.
Applicants must be actively working towards a college-level educational degree, where an internship is prescribed or required as part of the educational curriculum. This is an unpaid internship. Applications will be accepted through September 2.
