Virtualbookworm.com (VBW) Publishing is a self publishing firm based here in College Station, Texas, and has been in business since 2000. We have a great opportunity for graduates this year.
We would like to begin interviewing students planning to enter Texas A&M University or Blinn who would like to work full- or part-time in Summer, 2015, and then continue employment in Fall. Based on your performance and college schedule, you may be able to work for us your entire college career, graduating with a full portfolio of work and years of “real world” experience.
Here are the positions we offer and the skills you would learn:
Web Developer: This person would keep our corporate website updated as well as help develop promotional websites for our authors. Basic HTML knowledge is required and Photoshop skills would definitely be a plus (although additional training will be provided). Many of our author sites now use Wordpress, so such experience would also be helpful but not required.
Graphic Artist: This person would help with design book covers, website logos and graphics, business cards, postcards, bookmarks, etc. Basic Photoshop skills are required, but training will also be provided. We will also have this person assist with interior book layout and ebook layout, using a combination of InDesign and Microsoft Word. Students interested in Visualization, graphic art, video and design are encouraged to apply!
Promotions Assistant: This is the perfect position for someone interested in marketing and promotions. This person will help write and edit social media posts, distribute press releases, contact media representatives and independent book reviewers, plan promotional activities, and much more. Microsoft Word and strong writing skills are required. Adobe Photoshop skills are a plus!
