Summer Internship Program

Applications for Hachette Australia’s annual paid summer internship program are now closed. Check back next year for our 2024-2025 round.

Launched in 2020, the summer internship program is for anyone interested in a career in publishing. The full-time internship runs for four months, comes with an entry-level remuneration, and is offered each summer. No formal qualifications are necessary.

The Hachette Australia Summer Internship Program provides both a broad understanding of the trade publishing business and a deep dive into how the various departments within a commercial publishing house work together to take books to market – and ultimately into the hands of readers.

To help demystify working in Australian publishing and make the industry more accessible to people from a wide range of backgrounds and skillsets, Hachette Australia has also developed a local Guide to Publishing brimming with information about what life is like working inside a publishing house. Full details on the internship and Guide can be found here

Watch our 2022 virtual guide and Inside the Publisher Q&A 2023 for prospective interns and people interested to learn more about working in publishing. You can also read our Frequently Asked Questions.
