Be a Social Media Intern for Berrett-Koehler Publishers this Fall!
As our Social Media Intern, you’ll learn how to use programs that our marketing and publicity team uses to reach new readers (and entertain the current ones), while getting an insider’s view of the book publishing industry.  We’ll coach you how to create killer posts and analyze their impact with analytics tools.

The icing on the cake? We guarantee you’ll walk away with a diverse portfolio of work!

You’re going to learn how to do these cool things:

·      Organize and promote webinar events and AMA (Ask Me Anything) sessions with authors

·      Basic iMovie skills preferred

If you would like to apply, please email the following to kengh@bkpub.com:

·      Give us links to any public social media profiles you might have (no need to share private profiles). Now’s a good time to set any photos including red cups to “private” :).
