About Bookjobs.com

BOOKJOBS.COM was created to aid in the recruiting of the best and the brightest college graduates around the country—graduates from all ethnic and social backgrounds and all areas of study. The site serves two purposes: to provide a centralized place for job seekers to research available positions throughout the publishing industry, and to provide basic information about the book publishing industry as a whole—commonly used words and terms in the industry, department descriptions, companies, events, and other information.

About the AAP

AAP – Association of American Publishers

The Association of American Publishers (AAP) represents nearly four hundred member organizations including major commercial, digital learning, education and professional publishers alongside independents, non-profits, university presses and scholarly societies. We represent the publishing industry’s legislative, regulatory, and trade priorities regionally, nationally and worldwide. These include copyright and related intellectual property rights, piracy and enforcement strategies, digital growth and related business models, funding for education and libraries, fair tax and trade policies, and freedom of expression and literacy debates. Find us on www.publishers.org and on twitter at @AmericanPublish.

About the AAP’s Diversity / Recruit and Retain Committee

The AAP Recruit and Retain Task Force was formed in 2000 in order to find ways to attract high-caliber employee candidates to the book publishing industry and, once hired, retain them. In 1999, the AAP Committee on Diversity was established to recommend strategies, policies, and programs within AAP to help the industry become more inclusive by attracting, recruiting, and developing larger numbers of employees from underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds for core positions in publishing houses. Recognizing the crossover of their goals, the Recruit and Retain Task Force and the Committee on Diversity merged in 2002.
