Bookjobs.com is an initiative of the Association of American Publishers’ Diversity, Recruit & Retain Committee.  It is a “one-stop shop” for information about the book publishing industry, publisher profiles, industry events, and constantly updated jobs listings for entry level and above (as well as internship) positions in the book publishing field. One of the most important ingredients for a vibrant publishing industry and literary culture is a richly diverse talent pool. Our work centers on exploring and expressing new viewpoints and different ideas, and it is essential that the talent we draw into our industry, in every facet of the business, reflects a wide range of perspectives and experiences. Publishing houses have finance, marketing, sales, publicity, design, editorial, legal, and production departments, not to mention many, many more! Bookjobs.com gathers together job and internship listings from over 35 different publishers; provide information on the types of publishers and the departments within them; and can even help match college majors with particular jobs in publishing.
