Open Road Integrated Media has an opening for the fall semester for an unpaid (school credit) intern to work 15 to 20 hours per week in its Publishing Operations Department.

The Digital Production intern will assist the Publishing Operations Department in a number of tasks related to ebook production, specifically ePub and mobi file development (reflowable, fixed layout, read-aloud, video-enhanced, etc.).

Additional tasks may include optimizing InDesign files for output to ePUB, implementing updates to existing ebook files (i.e., swapping in new covers, inserting back ads, making corrections), and linking and bookmarking PDFs for distribution to retail partners.
