It’s also the publisher of many of the world’s best- known authors, such as John Grisham, Danielle Steel, Anne Rice, Dean Koontz, Dan Brown and Dr. Seuss.

Interns are placed in one of the company’s publishing groups or in a corporate group, such as finance, publishing operations, sales, IT or human resources. Random House tries to place interns according to their specific areas of interest. Once a week, interns gather for lunch to hear key executives speak about their roles and the work done within their divisions. Speakers may include experts in publishing, publicity, editorial, marketing, finance, production and elsewhere.


Open to all rising college seniors, regardless of major. Prior office experience and enthusiasm to gain more knowledge of the publishing industry are huge pluses.
