The Simon & Schuster Internship Program offers students a chance to explore the world of book publishing with a behind-the-scenes learning experience. Based on their area of interest, interns will be placed within specific departments where they will be able to experience a "day in the life", as they are immersed in the different aspects of the business. The program is supplemented with weekly speaker presentations, mentoring relationships, and networking opportunities.

Interns will both shadow and work alongside publishing professionals of all levels. They will attend meetings and events and participate in weekly lunch and learn programs designed specifically for the internship class.

The summer 2019 session is a paid, full time program and will run for 8 weeks (beginning in June of 2019)
