Just Got Hired

Intern Tonya Clary

Hired at Zharmae Publishing Press

Tonya is currently interning at The Zharmae Publishing Press as a Publishing Intern.

What do you look forward to the most in your internship?
I am actually not a student, but a professional that has been out of school for some time. I am a licensed attorney looking to make a career change AFTER the age of forty. Although I have a strong legal background, I did not have the educational background (i.e. English, Journalism major, etc.), nor any work experience in the publishing sector, for me to land a job in the industry. My next best route was to obtain an internship at a publishing house to gain some experience.

What about your internship are you most excited for?
The word “excitement” is an understatement as to how I felt when I was hired as a Publishing Intern for TZPP. I am now fulfilling a life-long dream! This just goes to show that you are never too old to DREAM BIG!

How did help you land your internship?
I did not believe would be of any real assistance in getting me an internship position, but thought I would give it a try anyway. Besides, what did I have to lose?! Well, I could not have been proven more wrong! After submitting my application to several publishing internships, I got hired by one within a month’s time. Thank you so much!!

Thank you Tonya for sharing your success story!
