Spring 2022 Internship - Academic Marketing

Job Locations US-Remote




The Academic Marketing department promotes books published by the General Books Group (adult titles) to high school teachers and college professors through our websites (HarperAcademic.com and Harper1stYear.com), book mailings, ecards, subject-area enewsletters, print and online advertising, social media, and our author interview podcast HarperAcademic Calling.


Our spring program will be completely remote. The program has been structured to allow for as much flexibility as possible, while also providing valuable educational programming and time for team-building amongst interns. The program will run from February 28 through May 6. Interns will be required to work 14 OR 21 hours per week at $17/hour, depending on the availability of the intern. Once the schedule is confirmed at the beginning of the program, the intern will not be able to switch between the 14 and 21 hour option.  The recruitment team is searching for applicants who identify with groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the publishing industry.


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.
