  • Summer 2020 Internship - Harper Marketing

    Job Locations US-NY-New York
  • Overview



    Our Harper Perennial and Harper Paperbacks Marketing team is seeking a summer intern!


    The HarperCollins Summer Internship Program is a paid 10-week program which runs from June 1 through August 7.  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. 


    Please submit a separate cover letter for each opportunity you apply to – applications without cover letters will not be considered.


    You can submit up to five different cover letters at a time by uploading them to your profile and naming them after the positions.
