Founded in Manhattan in 1807, John Wiley & Sons is one of the oldest independent publishing companies in the world. The company publishes books, journals, encyclopedia and educational materials. Its holdings include CliffsNotes, the Dummies series, Frommer’s travel guides and Betty Crocker and WeightWatchers cookbooks. This year, Wiley announced the launch of the Wiley Online Library, a multidisciplinary collection of online resources for scholars.
Interns work in the marketing, editing, IT, new media, customer service and publicity departments. There are five internship locations to choose from: the company’s headquarters in Hoboken, N.J., the distribution center in Somerset, N.J., the imprints in San Francisco, Calif. (Jossey-Bass, Pfeiffer and Sybex) and Indianapolis, Ind. (Dummies, CliffsNotes, Frommer’s), and the scientific journals in Malden, Mass. All locations offer seminars and group luncheons so that interns can learn more about the publishing field.
