ZamPublishing Internship(s): Tuscaloosa, AlabamaBookmark This
1902 Hackberry Lane
ZamPublishing, a publisher of community news based in Tuscaloosa Alabama (including North of the River Living - notrl.com), relies heavily on the help of interns, treating them in many respects the way salaried assistants are treated at other publishing houses. This means far greater exposure to interesting work than is normally afforded interns.
Our Tuscaloosa office is large and efficient enough to offer a wide spectrum of experience, but small and casual enough for you to form intimate and lasting bonds (not bad for networking purposes) with the staff you’ll be supporting.
ZamPublishing internship program acknowledges that each individual step is vital to the publishing process and aims to expose interns to the full view. Each intern post comes with its own specific and challenging duties, familiarizing the intern with a wide array of skills and techniques to prepare her/him to enter the publishing workforce.
ZamPublishing interns typically receive hourly compensation and may receive course credit. Normal office hours are from 9:30 to 5:30, Monday through Friday, plus there are sometimes opportunities for after-hours and/or weekend activities (typically fun things like parties, festivals, and other events, but occasionally deadline related items). Applications are accepted year-round. We apologize but we cannot respond to all applicants: only the appropriate candidates will be contacted and brought in for an interview.

The ideal applicant will be available for at least one semester (four months) as a ZamPublishing intern, but we welcome longer term and/or post-graduate internships as well.
Please specify in your application any major scheduling restrictions. Interns will often be responsible for office duty, so prior office experience is also helpful, as is any prior experience in publishing, editing, book sales, graphic design, etc.
While we make a point of familiarizing interns with a variety of programs at ZamPublishing, prior computer skills are always a plus.
