Looks like Wiley is gearing up for the summer internship season already. Yesterday the company officially posted the internships to its job openings site. I can't emphasize enough how important an internship can be for getting relevant experience to put on your resume.
Here's the description (the punctuation is theirs, not mine):
John Wiley & Sons, Inc. offers a structured ten-week summer internship program for students typically between their junior and senior years of college who aspire to careers in the publishing industry. Cited in the Princeton Review's America's Top 100 Internships as one of the best internships available for students, the Wiley program provides students with the opportunity to gain practical work experience and learn from publishing professionals.
Internship assignments exist in a variety of areas within the company such as Marketing, Editorial, Production, Information Technology, New Media, Customer Service and Publicity, and are based at our corporate office in Hoboken, New Jersey (just across the river from Manhattan), at our distribution center in Somerset, New Jersey, at Wiley's locations in San Francisco, California, Indianapolis, Indiana and in Malden, Massachusetts. The program combines on-the-job training with seminars and group luncheons.
Internship programs are available throughout the year. The summer program offers a weekly stipend and runs from May through August. If you are interested in applying for an internship, submit a letter addressing why you would like to be selected for the program and areas of interest along with a resume. Summer internship applications should be submitted by April 1.
