Hi! :) I would love to work in publishing and so far I've done one work experience placement in a publishing house. Plus I have another one coming up next month. I was just wondering how much work experience I need before actually apply for publishing jobs? Is two good enough? I'm not sure if it makes any different, but they are both in different departments.

I’d say it’s less about how much work experience you do and more about what you’ve learned from it (and other relevant experiences). If you work on a lot of different tasks (or even a few, but learned a lot from them), and can demonstrate this on your application and in your interview, then it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t necessary look better if you’ve done 4 months or 4 weeks if you can demonstrate the same skills, knowledge and experience.

Books Are My Bag (@booksaremybag) launched in 2013 and is a nationwide campaign to celebrate bookshops and the importance of buying books on the high street, from both chains and independents. This year’s celebration begins on Thursday 9th October followed by Big Bookshop Parties on Saturday 11th October, where they’ve aimed to get an author into every bookshop.
