Wiley

Editorial Analytics Intern

June - August 2018 • Medford, MA

What I liked

The work environment was very relaxed and the people were friendly. Almost everyone was approachable and willing to help me when I had questions. Work was challenging but not overwhelming.

What I wish was different

The internship was not as structured as it was portrayed, and it was monotonous at times. The work is more business-oriented rather than writing oriented. Also, there isn't a lot of company pride.

Advice

You will get a lot of money for not doing a ton of hard work, but it could be monotonous and there is a lot of silo-ing between departments. Be sure to network with and make friends in the business.

Sourcing & Procurement Intern

What I liked

I really liked the company culture and how innovative Wiley is. My boss gave me assignments that were challenging and achievable. I learned how to work in a team environment and I picked up a new skill (VBA Coding).

What I wish was different

I wish I had more excel experience going into my internship. I noticed that my colleagues were proficient in this area, giving me a big disadvantage.

Advice

Working hard and being a team player got me the internship and potentially a job.

WEL Content Management Intern

June - August 2018 • Hoboken, NJ

What I liked

My colleagues were wonderful, and the experience was structured week by week for the broader intern program.

What I wish was different

Advice

Educational publishing in a large corporation like Wiley isn't the kind of work I thought it would be. As lovely of an experience as it was, I found that I was learning pseudo tech skills (XML, etc) rather than using the editing skills I had learned in my jobs as a Spectator editor and English major. A lot of the full time jobs, likewise, are not editing related. So if you're looking into publishing specifically for the literary element, it's probably not the job for you.

Advice

The team is willing to help interns learn as they go.
