National Publishing Internships

Delivered by Publishers Association of New Zealand, on behalf of Creative New Zealand, the programme offers a Whitireia graduate the opportunity to work in a publishing company for six months. The internship gives talented newcomers additional training after graduation to develop their confidence and experience, and it allows publishers to benefit from a new employee in their organisation. The programme has produced some impressive results in past years with many publishers choosing to offer the interns full-time positions at the end of the programme and a number of interns now holding senior positions in publishing companies.
