Pace Publishing Internships Online

Pace University’s M.S. in Publishing Internship Website is now up and operational!

In our continued efforts to provide our students with current and highly relevant internships, the publishing department has created a digital internship resource page. Included are publisher resources and websites, job-search tools, and detailed internship information for dozens of available internships. Publishing companies are given the ability to log in to their own accounts and post new internships as they become available, giving Pace students a critical job-hunting edge.

STUDENTS: If you will be enrolling in Pace’s 699A or 699B Internship courses for Summer or Fall 2011 you will be given a password and username to access the site immediately (others who will be taking the course later will be given access the semester before they enroll in the course). If you are planning on taking these courses, please contact Professor Denning asap.

EMPLOYERS: If you are interested in posting internship postions to our website please contact Professor Denning to obtain your password a username. You will then be able to post, update and edit positions as you like.
