Most of you are probably here from @pubinterns, so you presumably know what this is going to be about. In the case of newbies, welcome! I’m Emma and I’m trying to help us all get experience, advice, internships and finally a job within the publishing industry. It’s notoriously difficult to break into, so we need all the help we can get.
On the majority of publishing job boards, we’re unqualified for 90% of the jobs posted. They require a few years experience within the industry, skills we have no idea about and connections with people we’ve never met. That’s why I started PubInterns, to create a space for everyone in the same position to network, share advice, job posts and to help each other out.
Watch this space for tips, collaborations with experts, jobs and other usefulness!
