What everyone looking for their first job will need to read

Nov 9, 2010

Today is the start of a new project ‘the bookcareers.com experiment’.  I’m taking on fresh graduate as a client; they have no prior work experience and have nothing at all which says publishing on their cv, but they do have a  ‘love of books’ .  I’ll be trying to help them break into the industry – and of course I will blog about it all too. 

The Graduate
Adela has recently graduated from University, and like many of you has a degree in English.  All I know about her is that she wants to work in publishing and, quite frankly, at this moment has nothing going for her, except my help. 

Over the next few weeks I will do my best to assist her jobhunting and integrate her into the industry with the ultimate dream of getting a full time salaried publishing  job – at this point I have no idea of the sector or department that is her goal.

So here we go… I’m about to meet Adela for the first time.   Wish me luck!!!
