Careers
Publishing Technologies Internship
Candlewick Press offers internships in the fall, spring, and summer according to the needs of various departments. The desired time commitment averages fourteen hours per week up to twelve weeks. An independent publisher, we are a dynamic company that provides excellent opportunities to acquire firsthand knowledge of the publishing industry. We are looking for motivated, conscientious, and dedicated individuals with excellent organizational skills, as well as strong attention to detail, who are very eager to learn about the children's publishing industry and be part of a high-energy, creative team.

The Publishing Technologies internship offers hands-on experience with several areas related to our digital publishing and marketing programs. The qualified intern will gain a thorough understanding of PDF creation and optimization using Adobe InDesign and Adobe Acrobat; assist the supervisor with video editing and post-production projects using Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects; help produce promotional videos used to market our novelty children's books; assist with setup and production for occasional on-site video shoots with authors and illustrators; learn to use digital photography in a controlled shooting environment in order to create promotional images for pop-up books, flap books, merchandise, box sets, giveaways, and more; shadow the supervisor on occasional e-book production projects to gain knowledge in e-book creation, file preparation, file testing, and on sale support. Candidates for this internship must be proficient on Mac OS and should understand the basics of design, video and audio editing, using the Adobe Creative Suite. Any e-book and basic HTML experience would be a bonus. Examples of your work are always welcome and encouraged!

As internships are determined on a need basis, there is a chance a particular department may not host an intern every semester. Candlewick Press' paid internship initiative offers an invaluable opportunity to develop professional skills, learn the ins and outs of the publishing world, and make important contacts within the industry. Internships can be used for college credit if approved by the interns' educational institution. We Need Diverse Books (WNDB) offers grants for diverse candidates. For more information, click here.

Our annual application deadlines are as follows:

Spring internships - November 5th
Summer internships - March 5th
Fall internships - June 5th

To Apply: submit a resume and cover letter via e-email, specifying the position and semester of interest, to the attention of the internship coordinator at interns@candlewick.com. If applying for more than one department's internship, please submit separate cover letters for each.
