Random House Recruiting at Indiana University

This week I discovered that the IU Communication and Culture program has a blog. And on this blog they post all kinds of really helpful information related to publishing careers and education.

What really caught my eye is that Random House is coming to campus February 4 to present two informational sessions (at 6 and 7:15) about careers with the company. All IU students are welcome to attend to hear about three different options:
  • The Summer Internship Program
  • The Associates Program
  • Full-time opportunities

The Associates Program is particularly intriguing. Here's RH's description of it:

The Associates Program is ideally suited to college graduates who are passionate about publishing, but need to know more before committing to a specific area. The one-year program provides a year of training and exposure to many different aspects of the book publishing business. An Associate is assigned to a specific publishing imprint or division, and rotates through its various departments. The basic concept of the Associates Program is to explore and learn more about the many facets of publishing before committing to a particular area. After one year in the program, Associates are encouraged to apply for any open position within their area of interest.
