Company Name: NY BOOK EDITORS
Description:

We’re hiring an intern for our Publishing Start-up.

*This can be a virtual role.*

We’re looking for an intern who has a passion for the publishing world and would enjoy categorizing hundreds of award-winning books.

ABOUT NEW YORK BOOK EDITORS

New York Book Editors is a start-up that pairs independent authors with award-winning editors, providing mentorship and guidance throughout the editing process. Our goal is to improve the author’s craft as well as the manuscript at hand.

We offer the energy and excitement of a startup, along with the opportunity to make a massive impact in the lives of hundreds of authors.

As part of this close-knit company, you'll be working within an intimate, positive environment that thrives on organization, communication, and efficiency.

AS A NEW YORK BOOK EDITOR INTERN, YOU WOULD:

Create Editor Profiles using Word Press, which shows writers which publishers the editor has worked for and provides a list of notable books they’ve edited. You’ll become intimately familiar with some of the best editors in the world.

Provide Administrative Support. You must be comfortable with Google Docs and Excel spreadsheets.

This role will last 1 to 2 months and can be taken while attending class.

**Please note: We also use Help Scout, Proposify, Google Drive, and Infusionsoft. If you don't know the software, we can teach you. All we need you to be is eager and excited to learn these best-in-class management systems.**

Excellent with Communication Skills - You understand the nuances of email communication, and can handle even the most challenging situations with professionalism and warmth. You're also committed to keeping your supervisor "in the know" about your progress. (No one has to ever chase you down!)
