Sigma Tau Delta is partnering with the W. W. Norton college division to offer Sigma Tau Delta students the opportunity to gain experience in college/university publishing through a 12-week internship program during the fall 2023 semester. Internships provide valuable hands-on experience with the day-to-day business of bookmaking, as well as opportunities to network with employees at the company and with fellow interns who frequently go on to become colleagues in the field.
- Interns at W. W. Norton are paid $15 per hour and work a maximum of 20 hours weekly.
- Specific work hours are flexible, but interns are expected to work three or four days per week. All interns must be able to work during regular business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST).
- W. W. Norton candidates will be given priority consideration for an interview for the editorial department of the W. W. Norton College Division.
Norton does not complete any paperwork for colleges, universities, or other entities related to for-credit internships or eligibility to work in the US. W. W. Norton & Company, an equal opportunity employer, is fully independent and employee-owned.
Sigma Tau Delta has the opportunity to submit up to four priority candidates. The priority candidates will receive an interview with W. W. Norton hiring staff.
To apply for the priority application, eligible student members must complete the Sigma Tau Delta W. W. Norton priority AwardSpring application, due August 4, 11:59 p.m. CDT.
Sigma Tau Delta will forward application materials for our final selected priority candidates to W. W. Norton. While not required for priority consideration, students may also apply directly to W. W. Norton through the posting link on their website.
- Priority candidates are active chapter student members of Sigma Tau Delta who are at the time of application
- enrolled full time as either undergraduate or graduate students in the fall 2023 semester;
- a current sophomore, junior, or senior; or
- a student in a graduate program.
- Candidates must be eligible to work in the United States.
- The position may be in person or remote, but students from Alaska, South Dakota, and West Virginia are not eligible to work remotely in New York State.
