You need to be organized and detail-oriented (it is very easy to send the wrong flyer to the wrong person or forget which tasks you’ve completed). Being a self-starter is also important: some days you might arrive when no-one is around for guidance. It was a lovely place to work – very relaxed, flexible, and friendly, and in a lovely building. I think the key to a great experience is to just throw yourself in – get to know the people and what the company does!

Though the ideal person for this experience would have a particular interest in academic publishing, this was certainly not essential - my ambition is to work in trade one day. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the work and came to be very interested in academic publishing. I also learned skills which are applicable across any sector of publishing.
