As GalleyCat previously reported, Borders Group is preparing for liquidation, which will close the company’s remaining 399 stores and leave roughly 10,700 employees out of work.
We’re always posting about new job opportunities, but thanks to an interesting topic of discussion posted by Penguin Group’s Colleen Lindsay about helping those soon-to-be unemployed workers, we decided to draw attention to several openings that might be of interest to Borders employees.
For instance, Bauman Rare Books is looking for a well-read bookseller in Las Vegas, while Oxford University Press is in the market for an online editor. Lindsay’s company, Penguin, is currently on the hunt for an eBook Producer/managing editor in its New York office. These are just a few of the job openings we’ve seen this week on the mediabistro.com job board.
Every week, The Job Post rounds up new batches of just-posted book publishing jobs, so make sure to check back on GalleyCat regularly to sift through the new gigs. Job seekers can also follow us on @mbJobPost to get new listings via Twitter. Best of luck to everyone!
