    Pros

    There was an open environment and everyone seemed truly excited to go to work every day. People were truly passionate about books.

    Cons

    Certain departments have less focus during meetings and it would be better if these elements were made more of a focus on to prevent skewed information.

    Advice to Management

    Being open to new software and changes in the industry is a good idea.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Penguin Group (USA).

    Interview

    In the publishing industry, internship recruitment generally happens pretty late in the year. I applied in January and followed up with the recruiter several times. Once I finally heard back from her (around March), the process moved relatively quickly. There was a quick phone screen with the recruiter, and a few weeks later I was contacted about a specific opening. I had a longer phone interview with the same recruiter and the woman who became my supervisor for the summer. It lasted about an hour, and was very friendly and pretty low pressure. About two hours later, I received a call and got the offer!
