The job prospects are looking as good as ever for this year’s Diploma in Publishing (Applied) graduates. Just a month after the course finish we can report eight people in new publishing jobs.
The positions span from marketing roles at MILK Books in Auckland and Weta to editorial and publishing roles at the Cancer Society, Te Papa Press and At Summit Asia Pacific. In addition, three graudates will be taking up internships in the PANZ Publishing Internship Programme in the new yar:
- Isaac Snoswell is taking up the position of publishing assistant at South Pacific Press, where he will help produce educational texts for schools in New Zealand and overseas. Isaac’s role will range from writing and editing texts to producing and working with innovative digital technologies.
- Jd Nodder will be Huia’s sales and marketing executive, which will see her involved in the marketing and sales of the Māori, Pacific and New Zealand books for which Huia is so well known. The key elements of Jd’s role will include developing marketing plans, working on publicity, and managing sales, as well as other tasks such as manuscript assessment.
- Emma Wolff will be working at Awa Press, a leading producer of contemporary non-fiction in New Zealand.
We are confident that more great jobs are on the way for the remaining graduates – if they’re lucky, some might get to enjoy a summer holiday first.
