Have you ever wanted to work in manga? Well, here’s your chance!
Kondasha Comics is looking for a new crop of Fall 2013 interns, and it might be your lucky day!
Here is our official notice:
Random House Publisher Services is seeking a fall intern to assist with the Kodansha Comics manga program. The intern will receive a well-rounded introduction to publishing, including work in editorial, production, marketing/sales processes, and social media. Some responsibilities will include proofreading/editing, database management, art review, data entry, and schedule tracking. There will be numerous administrative duties as well. Students who are familiar with MS Office, FileMaker Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and Acrobat Pro are preferred. Familiarity with Japanese is helpful, but not required. An interest in manga or comics is required (applications that do not address this will be discarded). This is a non-paid internship. You must be able to receive credit from your school in order to apply for this position.
Please send your resume and cover letter to kodanshacomics[at]randomhouse[dot]com.
Application deadline is August 23rd.
Hope to see some of you join our team this fall!
Even if you can’t apply, we’d appreciate it if you’d reblog and spread the word! We’re looking for passionate manga fans, and I think tumblr is the perfect place to look! ^_^
