Did you know that Catapult has a top-secret satellite office in Portland, Oregon? We do, and you can intern with us!
Our intrepid Oregon staff are looking for a well-read, detail-oriented, highly organized individual with the communication and system-building skills to support our marketing initiatives at Catapult / Counterpoint / Soft Skull . You’ll get to work with our Portland Dream Team: Jennifer Abel Kovitz (Associate Publisher), Dustin Kurtz (Social Media Editor), Alisha Gorder (Publicist), and Dory Athey (Marketing Assistant). We’re keen to find an intern with a passion for the sales and marketing side of book publishing. The internship runs for four to six months, depending on the candidate’s preference and availability, and begins the week of October 9th, 2017 . It is a paid position, 20-25 hours per week, and the intern must have their own computer.
We expect a lot of our interns, and in turn, expect a lot from ourselves in creating a truly beneficial internship experience—one that will provide real and marketable career skills. Our interns are paid, and they are also exposed to an exciting and broad community of exceptionally talented, motivated, and creative people. (And shhh, don’t tell our Berkeley or New York colleagues, but you won’t do that many mailings from our Portland office.)
Former intern and metadata goddess/comp title wizard Melina Hughes had this to say about the Portland internship: “Interning with Catapult gave me hands-on experience in traditional and creative marketing. It is an incredibly dynamic job that never fails to be both educational and rewarding. The Catapult team is made up of the brightest and most innovative publishing professionals. Catapult is truly the best internship I have experienced.”
Interested applicants should send a resume and cover letter to Dory at [email protected] by 10:00 a.m. PST on Monday, August 28th.
