Resumes & Cover Letters


In this industry words are incredibly important so any spelling, punctuation or grammar errors are unacceptable. The format and appearance of your resume is also important in publishing, but so is the content.

Cover Letters

Writing is a large part of almost all roles in publishing, so you must always write a cover letter, which helps a hiring manager evaluate your writing skills. In addition, your passion for publishing must be evident in your cover letter. If the organization you’re applying to publishes one of your favorite authors be sure to write that, and show genuine interest.  It is to your advantage to be more narrative and/or creative in your writing while still being professional, and following standard cover letter format.
