  Career Opportunities at Random House

On Friday, April 20th, the Spring 2007 CUNY Leadership participants attended a Corporate Leadership Roundtable event courtesy of Random House, Inc. The event was the first of its kind with Random House and will be followed up by future collaborations. The topic of the afternoon, Corporate Leadership: Successful Leaders in the Publishing Industry was presented by Stacy Berliner, the Senior Staffing Manager at Random House. She introduced the attendees to the publishing industry by describing several departments including production, sales, information technology, finance, human resources, legal, subsidiary rights and new media and all their various functions. She then explored career opportunities in each of these fields and the skills and competencies that are needed to successfully fulfill these roles.

After the presentation, students partook in a lively dialogue with three assistants who had gone through Random House¡¯s Associates Program. The Associate¡¯s Program is an intensive one-year training program that allows prospective employees to learn more about publishing by rotating through different divisions within the company. In addition to learning firsthand the responsibilities of each division, participants attend lectures and seminars designed to provide guidance on the different aspects of publishing.

As with every roundtable event, students were encouraged to follow up the presentation by meeting other participants. They continued the discussion and introduced themselves to Ms. Berliner and her associates who distributed free books and refreshments.

The staff and students of the Institute for Virtual Enterprise would like to thank Ms. Berliner and her colleagues for their hospitality and support and we look forward to many more events.
