Always be on the alert for potentially fraudulent job postings online - never send money to a potential employer.
DescriptionDreaming Big Publications is a book publishing company offering an internship position for a writer to contribute to our blog. We try to post something new to our blog daily, so it is important that we constantly have new material coming in. The material must be original, not plagiarized, and free of error.
Since we also have open calls for submissions on a regular basis, the opportunity exists for the intern to have their writing considered for these collections as well.
ResponsibilitiesOther tasks may include creating content for posting to social media sites, for interns who are interested in managing a social media account rather than writing blog posts. The purpose of the social media posts will be to help market and promote our books. The learning objective is for the intern to learn marketing skills needed as a writer in today's world. I get manuscripts from writers who are great writers, but I spend the majority of my time teaching them how to use social media sites, how to market their work, and how to use the internet. Writers need to know these things, and need to know how to follow simple instructions. This internship will help you learn some much-needed basic skills to make it in the publishing world.
RequirementsNo travel is necessary. You work from your own home and on your own time.
Please do not contact me about this internship until after you have looked at my website and familiarized yourself with my company before applying. Do not send me a form letter that you have copied and pasted without personalizing it. By personalizing it I mean address me by name, spell the company name right, and mention something about one of the books that we have for sale or coming soon. Mention it by name. Finally, do not apply here to this website. I will not respond. If you truly want this position and have taken the time to actually read this listing, then you will know that I want you to look at the website and contact me via the email address that you will find on my website. Why? Because that shows me that you are actually paying attention. Consider that step one of your application process. I am not trying to bypass Internships.com in any way, but am simply trying to weed out the applicants who are copying and pasting form letters on this website without putting any effort into applying for the position they are seeking. If you take the time to follow the instructions here in these requirements, then I want you on my team. If you don't, you don't have what it takes to make it in publishing. Oh, and to show me that you have a sense of humor, title the email something funny, like "It's raining ducks", or "purple people eater" or something silly. That will also show me you read this whole job posting, because otherwise, who would address an application like that unless instructed to?
