Summer 2024 Internship

Sigma Tau Delta is partnering with the W. W. Norton College Division to offer Sigma Tau Delta students the opportunity to gain experience in college/university publishing through a 12-week internship program. Internships provide valuable hands-on experience with the day-to-day work that brings books into existence, as well as opportunities to network with employees at the company and with fellow interns who frequently go on to become colleagues in the field.

  • Interns at W. W. Norton are paid $16 per hour and work a maximum of 20 hours weekly. Summer internship dates: June 3 - August 23, 2024.
  • Specific work hours are flexible, but interns are expected to work three or four days per week. All interns must be able to work during regular business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST).

  • Interns must be eligible to work in the United States. They are required to reside in the United States during their internship.
Norton does not complete any paperwork for colleges, universities, or other entities related to for-credit internships or eligibility to work in the US. W. W. Norton & Company, an equal opportunity employer, is fully independent and employee-owned.
