After three (count em THREE) rejection emails from three different publishing companies yesterday (for jobs, not manuscripts), I’m beginning to ponder the merits of applying for unpaid internships/work experience in the publishing industry. There are loads of different types, lengths, some pay lunch/travel… There’s a lot there to think about. The two week long work experience places really interest me as I’ve got loads of holiday time to use up after August.
So what I wanna know is it worth it? Has anyone out there had any joy from doing work experience? Or maybe you have some job-hunting advice full stop?
Let me know!
