Peddle Power

Publishing graduate Kay Peddle was featured in the Bookseller (19 February 2010) in the careers section. Kay graduated from the MA in International Publishing at Oxford Brookes in 2007, and whilst at Brookes did an internship at the World Bank in Washington. Originally from South Africa, where she studied at the University of Pretoria, Kay has worked at Random House in London since graduation. She is now an Assistant Editor at the Bodley Head and has been long listed for the British Council Young Publisher of the Year award.

Kay is an example of someone who has moved across departments, starting in marketing and now working in editorial. In the Bookseller article she emphasizes the benefits of getting experience across many departments: 'Career paths obviously depend on a person's aptitude and strengths, but if you don't get into the department you initially had your hopes set on then be open to following another path, at least initially. The industry is so broad and diverse, you might be surprised that you actually enjoy something completely different and there is always the opportunity to move at a later stage in your career.'
