Its divisions include Simon & Schuster Adult Publishing, Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, Simon & Schuster Audio, Simon & Schuster Digital, and international companies in Australia, Canada, India and the United Kingdom.
The Simon and Schuster Internship Program participants will have an unmatched, behind-the-scenes learning experience. Though interns work within specific departments, they are able to explore all aspects of the business of book publishing through speaker presentations, mentoring relationships and networking opportunities.
Interns are placed within specific imprints or divisions on either the adult or children’s side of the business based on interest, experience, academic coursework, and the Simon and Schuster business needs. Past assignments have typically been within editorial, marketing, and publicity departments.
Interns will both shadow and work alongside publishing professionals. They will also attend meetings and events and participate in weekly lunch and learn programs designed specifically for the intern class.
