PUBSLUSH Press is a new kind of publishing company with a conscious. We are an innovative platform linking aspiring authors directly with their readers, and publishing directly with literacy. By allowing the people to decide what gets published, and donating a book for every book we sell, we are shaking up the industry. We work long hours but we have fun doing it. Learn more about us at www.pubslush.com and our Youtube channel (www.youtube.com/pubslushvideo).
About the role: This is an anything and everything king of role, not limited to but including: author recruitment, building our user base, content creation and management, managing social media, planning events and workshops, media outreach and follow up, and much more.
About you: You are a fun, energetic, intelligent, hardworking go-getter with a passion for publishing, technology and most of all, a desire to change the world. You are the type of person who starts clubs and organizations, organizes events for your friends, and when you see a problem with something, you fix it. You are someone who’s not interested in a 9-5, or in bureaucracy. You want to work for a young, innovative company where everyone works hard and works together. We are looking for someone who is equally excited about our concept, and who will grow with us as we continue to expand. Simply, you should be prepared to get back what you give.
You'll have the ability to explore areas that interest you and grow with us! There's a lot to be done, and a lot of potential for growth. Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn (and go above and beyond) are more important to us than specific skills. Okay, okay, I know this all may sound very serious. And yes, it is pretty serious. But lighten up! (Hey, if you've gotten this far, we think you've probably got some special talent.) If this stuff doesn't scare you, we want to hear from you. (We are looking for someone who's not only intelligent, but awesome, relaxed, and super motivated.)
Internships are for a 3 month period. Those who meld well with our team will be considered for full time employment. As we said, you get what you give.

Publishing or public relations mastermind a plus!
