On Thursday, Oct. 29, the promise office is hosting a bookjobs.com and Association of American Publishers event during common hour in the Student Incubator in the Library.
Representatives from the company will be sharing a presentation with students regarding the careers available, including publishing, marketing, editing, accounting, art/design, finance, publicity, advertising, sales, and IT.
“Students do not always realize the career opportunities available to them and we want to bring awareness to the industry,” said Ali DiBona, senior associate director of LIU Promise.
DiBona hopes that students understand the many facets of the industry by attending the event, and pushes for possible career opportunities within publishing. “[We] want students to know how to get their foot in the door at big publishing companies such as Random House, Penguin Books, Pearson, McGraw Hill, HarperCollins.”
