    Our Ecco publicity team is currently seeking a summer intern! 

     

    Ecco (Italian for "there it is") was born as an independent press in 1971, and in 1999 became an imprint of HarperCollins. Today, Ecco publishes about 40 books a year, from literary fiction and general nonfiction to poetry, cookbooks, and literature in translation, by authors including Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, and National Book Award recipients among others, such as Richard Ford, Russell Banks, Joyce Carol Oates, Patti Smith, John Ashbery, Charles Bukowski, Anthony Bourdain, Mario Batali, Ben Fountain, Ron Rash, Amy Tan, Kevin Wilson, Patrick DeWitt, Madeline Miller, and David Wroblewski.

     

    The HarperCollins Summer Internship Program is a paid 10-week program which runs from June 10 through August 15.  All interns work Monday through Thursday, for a total of 28 hours per week.  As a HarperCollins intern, you will learn about the entire publishing process - following one book from beginning to end while hearing from the people who worked on it in our weekly lunch and learn series (lunch is provided!). You will work on a publishing project throughout the summer with your fellow interns and have the opportunity to present your findings to senior staff.  There are plenty of opportunities to network including an icebreaker bowling trip, and the end of the program culminates with a presentation called “How to Get a Job in Publishing” – offering advice on your resume, cover letter, interview, and networking.
