    I worked at Bloomsbury full-time


    Working in publishing was a noble pursuit.


    Not a lot of room to grow due to the size of the company.

    Editorial Intern Interview

    I applied online – interviewed at Bloomsbury.

    Interview Details

    Less than a week after submitting my application materials, I was contacted and asked if I would like to come in for an interview that week. The interview ended up being delayed a few weeks due to the busy holidays, but I was not forgotten. The interview itself was very casual. I met with an editor who would have been one of my supervisors, and It felt more like a casual discussion between friends than an interview. I don't believe it lasted longer than 30 minutes. I was told I should hear something in a week or two, and to feel free to send an email before then if I began feeling antsy. I was also given a few free books at the end of the interview.

    I should mention that I am not sure this interview was the norm for them. It was right after the holidays and the offices were fairly empty. I was informed by a friend, who interviewed with them as well, that she met with three people and that her interview was surprisingly intense for an internship position.

    Interview Questions
    • The interview was more a discussion than anything. I was asked why publishing, why editorial, and to talk about some of my favorite books. I can't remember being asked anything out of the ordinary and there were none of those "biggest strength/weakness" type questions.   Answer Question

Chronicles of the boy wizard Harry Potter have lent a magical quality to Bloomsbury Publishing's bottom line. J.K. Rowling's mega-successful series has brought this small publisher to worldwide fame, but Bloomsbury also has other best-selling authors on its list, including Joanna Trollope, John Irving, Margaret Atwood, and Michael Ondaatje. Bloomsbury also publishes non-fiction titles, including "Kitchen Confidential" by Anthony Bourdain, the famous-persons reference title "Who's Who", and the "Whitaker's Almanack", primarily through its A&C Black subsidiary.
