Macmillan Publishers is currently offering paid, part-time, remote internship opportunities for Spring 2022. Internships in our Shared Services division will be available in areas such as: Legal, Human Resources, Information Technology/Infrastructure, Sustainability, Subsidiary Rights, and Finance and Accounting. Internships in our Trade Publishing will be available in areas such as Editorial, Marketing/Digital Marketing, Publicity, Art & Design, Sales, Production, Podcasting, Speakers Bureau, Creative Services and Communications/Author Events.
Interns in our program will become familiar with the basic structure of the department/team and gain a general understanding of the key roles the particular trade/shared services function plays in a publishing house. Interns will be provided with the opportunity to participate in job-related assignments, gain practical work experience, and network with employees from various departments — all virtually.
The Macmillan spring internship program is available to candidates who have graduated high school, are over the age of 18, are eligible to work in the U.S. and aspire to pursue a career in the publishing industry. Applicants who identify with groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the publishing industry [including but not limited to: BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, veterans and people with disabilities] are strongly encouraged to apply.
Interns will work no more than 25 hours per week. Internships start on January 18, 2022 and will continue through May 13, 2022. If needed, there may be some flexibility in regards to the duration of the internship.
In addition to a cover letter, please include in your application a document answering the following prompts (max of 250 words each):
- Why are you interested in working at Macmillan?
- Between your skills, experiences, and everything in between, what do you bring to the table?
