As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I have quite a bit of traveling ahead of me. I’m hoping to spend a good portion of the time reading books, but I have to admit that I’ve been terrible about reading lately. Running a business makes it hard enough to find time to read, and when I do have time, it seems that my laptop makes it too easy to read articles and blog posts. I’m also torn about whether I should buy more hard copy books or invest in an e-reading device like an iPad or Kindle (it seems the Kindle is the winner for heavy readers). You’re probably thinking about how you don’t care about my reading habits, but they’re actually really important when looked at through the lens of a company like Hachette Book Group. If a big reader like me is reading fewer books, then they have some big challenges ahead of them. And that’s why the publishing industry is an exciting place to be right now. Hachette, which is headquartered in New York City, has a simple mission: “to publish great books well.” From 1837 when Little, Brown and Company was founded (they’re now part of Hachette), up until just a few years ago, the way they went about pursuing that mission didn’t change much. Lately, it’s been changing a lot.
Despite all the changes in the publishing industry, Hachette is able to stand strong because of their vision to be “the #1 destination for authors, agents, customers and employees.” They appear to be putting the content above the medium, and that’s a recipe for success these days. I don’t have the inside details of how Hachette Book Group’s business is doing, but I like what I see when I browse around their site. If you feel the same way, then you should check out jobs at Hachette Book Group. They have a bunch of positions posted, and a few seem suitable for new or recent grads including Order Fulfillment Representative (Boston), Data Coordinator (Boston), Subrights Assistant (NYC), Sales Associate (NYC), In-House Floater (NYC), Web Publicist (NYC), Customer Financial Services Representative (Boston), Special Packaging Coordinator (Boston, MA), and Copy Coordinator (NYC). It looks like they have lots of great opportunities available, so see what suits you best.
