Our internship programme: recruitment

KatOur Company, Recruitment

Every year, as we emerge from winter, we welcome a blizzard of applications for our summer intern scheme. The internships we offer give a proper insight into real work at a publishing company, and they’re an incredibly useful way for us to find talented people. The internships are really popular – hardly surprising, as publishing is a highly competitive field. But it’s more than that. Here we treat interns like any other member of staff – there’s no incessant photocopying and no requirement to make the coffee!

I very quickly learned to style documents, brushed up on my proofreading symbols, and was taught how to use more complex features in Microsoft Word, like wildcards, to help me work more efficiently.

When I first spotted the Prepress Projects intern opportunity on Twitter, I got very excited; the description sounded exactly like what I wanted to do in my publishing career: editing academic content.
