The Publishing Careers Blog

Books2I consider it my civic duty to point out interesting publishing-related blogs that I recently discovered.  I'm particularly delighted to tell you about Lori Cates Hand's Publishing Careers blog.  Why?  Besides being a great resource for anyone interested in learning more about publishing jobs, Lori just happens to be the very first person I ever hired.  Yep, she joined our team at Macmillan as a copy editor right out of college and look at her now!  Lori is currently Product Line Manager at JIST, another local publisher that specializes in career books.

So do me a favor: Stop by Lori's blog and tell her to keep up the great work.  It's great to see more publishers jumping into the blogosphere and I'm thrilled that Lori is doing such a nice job representing JIST.

Thanks for the shout-out, Joe!

I'm always on the lookout for publishing professionals to profile. Anyone interested in sharing their story of how they got into publishing, what a day on the job is like, and what advice you'd give to young people who want to follow in your footsteps, can send it to me at
