http://www.bookjobs.com/ is a great site for anyone interested in working in the publishing field. For those who do not know much about publishing but are vaguely interested in it, the site provides basic information about the book publishing industry, including commonly used words and terms, department descriptions, and companies. Not only does the site have an organized comprehensive list of publishing internships (this is where I found my last internship with a literary agency in NYC), but for those who have graduated, it allows you to choose specific departments and provides a list of available jobs based on your specifications. Publishing is an evolving and engaging field and in need of talented English majors, so if you are contemplating your career plans, you should definitely explore this website.
