London – How to Job Search in Book Publishing

We are pleased to announce that we will be running our popular How to Job Search in Book Publishing Course, in London on 28th February 2019. This is sponsored by The Book Trade Charity BTBS, and supported by The Booksellers Association.

Would you like to know EVERYTHING there is to know about job searching in book publishing?
Are you beginning your job search?
Or maybe you’ve been looking for a while and getting nowhere.

Whether you are established in your publishing career or just starting out, this course is for you. You will learn all there is to know about how to find a job in book publishing. Even if you think you already ‘know it all’ you are likely to come away from the course having learnt something new.

We incorporate all aspects of job searching – from CVs, covering letters, interviews (including competency based interviews), networking, social media, Recruitment Consultants, branding, where to find jobs – and add in lots of valuable inside information that is essential in today’s ever-changing job climate.

This course is aimed at people who already have some experience of book publishing and who may be job searching for the first time in quite a while, or who have already been on a prolonged job search, although we will welcome entry level candidates who have an understanding of the book publishing industry and the jobs available. It doesn’t matter which sector you are in, be it Trade, Academic, Educational, STM etc, the skills you will learn are applicable to all areas.

If you would like to talk to us about the course before booking, to ensure that it is relevant to your needs, please email your CV to online@bookcareers.com and we will schedule a time to talk on the phone.

If you are currently unemployed and from the UK book industry (publishing, bookselling, distribution) you can apply for a FREE place sponsored by The Book Trade Charity BTBS!

If you are unemployed and have made a commitment to a career in the UK book industry (work experience, are a member of the SYP, have an MA in Publishing, or something similar) then you may qualify for your place to be sponsored by The Book Trade Charity (BTBS). In the first instance, to apply for this sponsorship, please email your current CV and a covering letter for job you’ve recently applied for to online@bookcareers.com.
We may from time to time have one bookcareers.com volunteer place per course for people who are unemployed and cannot get funding from elsewhere. Again, please email online@bookcareers.com to apply.
