Director of Social Media Intern (06/2017)

Hard Work Publishing LLC is a new “traditional” publishing company.  By the use of the term “traditional” that indicates there are no charges for authors under contract for any of the services provided by our company.  We are not “subsidy publishers” or a “vanity press.”  Hard Work Publishing sells books written by our authors and pays them royalties. We will publish books across a full spectrum of topics.  Books are printed, bound, warehoused and shipped directly to end users, to book order filling companies serving the retail book trade and to retail book sellers directly.  Books are also available across the full range of E formats.  We are members of the Independent Book Publishers Association and are making application to the American Book Sellers Association as a Publisher Associate.

We are seeking an intern to work with us in developing our social media platform.  This intern will be given the responsibility of looking at our needs and using the various platforms contained in milieu of social media to construct a program that will give Hard Work Publishing recognition and exposure to readers and book sellers alike.  Areas of focus will include, but not be limited to, Linkedin, You Tube, Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and Pinterest.  There will also be some involvement in writing press releases.

An intern who is looking for a high stress position will be disappointed at Hard Work Publishing.  We take business seriously, but at the same time adopt a laid-back approach.  There are no office hours or normally a need to be at a location at a certain time or place.  The work can be done from nearly anywhere.  There will of course be daily conversations with the various other directors and the Publisher.  While we all have last names we don’t use them among ourselves.

We expect this to be an internship that will return three units to the intern.  Monetary recompense will be discussed during the interview process.  There is certainly the opportunity for the internship to convert to regular employment in the future.

There is one condition the selected intern must accept as part of an agreement to join Hard Work Publishing.  The intern has to agree to join us and have fun everyday and we will make it up as we go.
