College & University Outreach Training

On Tuesday, October 21, 2014 from 6:30-7:30pm at the AAP New York offices (71 Fifth Avenue, second floor), eleven YPG members from nine different houses attended the sixth official YPG College & University Outreach training. The session was led by Carolyn Zimatore, Senior Manager, Talent Acquisitions at HarperCollins and was an effort to train members of the junior publishing community who are interested in speaking about career opportunities in book publishing at colleges and universities in the area how to speak most effectively about a wide range of departments and houses.

Handouts and materials were provided for the attending volunteers, who are now eligible to represent the publishing industry and www.bookjobs.com  at local educational institutions. Since the beginning of our YPG’s College and University Outreach program (an initiative of the AAP’s Diversity to Recruit and Retain Committee, DRRC) in February 2012, our members have taken part in over 60 educational seminars, speaking engagements, career fairs, and informational panels. We are proud to announce that we now have over 100 YPG members in our college outreach group.

Our next group training will take place in February 2015. For more information on becoming involved in local college outreach, please contact Becca Worthington.
