We are pleased to offer 1-2 internships per academic semester to college upperclassmen, graduate students, and graduates looking to explore the world of book publishing.
Internships are unpaid, but high-responsibility. They involve reading submissions and writing readers’ reports; copy-editing book proposals; helping maintain our social media presence; scouting new clients; and occasional clerical tasks.
We prefer our interns to work 8-16 hours weekly — preferably in 8-hour days — and we will do all necessary paperwork to make sure our interns receive school credit. Due to the nature of the work we assign our interns, it is essential that they be present in the office. We regret that we cannot offer telecommuting internships.
Many Ross Yoon interns go on to find full-time work in book publishing. Two of us on the Ross Yoon team started as interns here; others now work for major NYC publishers and agencies.
We hire interns three times per year:
August 1-15 for fall semester internships (early September until mid-December)
December 1-15 for spring semester internships (early January until mid-May)
April 1-15 for summer internships (mid-May until late August)
If you would like to apply for an internship, please email Anna Sproul-Latimer at firstname.lastname@example.org within one of the above windows, including a resume, cover letter, and 500-word writing sample in any genre.
