Love books? So do we. But it takes more than a well-used Kindle, a penchant for correcting misplaced apostrophes and an eye for spotting the next Minituarist / Goldfinch / [insert must-read book here] to succeed in publishing. And it's not all about editorial - publishing is a multi-million pound juggernaut of an industry that brings together people from all business areas. From rights and licensing to operations and publicity, there are dozens of roles that make use of a variety of skillsets and expertise.

Ok, so the below might not become your new blueprint for how to live your life, but it might give you a good insight into how businesses are starting to think. What could you be doing now to be able to adapt to different cultural settings? Perhaps working abroad, or getting an internship in a global company, might help you to build up some great examples of this skill? Could signing up for an optional module in a different department provide evidence of transdisciplinarity?

With the festive season upon us, many of us will be looking forward to a break from the routine. It’s also a great time of year to take stock of where you are in your careers planning. The spring term is ideal for getting that work experience or internship under your belt before you get to the end of the year, so it’s worth starting it with a plan!
