Here's an interesting rebuttal from the article that tells you the only way to be successful in publishing is to move to New York. With they heavy use of technology today, you no longer have to be physical present at your job do actually do your job. Almost everything is done online nowadays, and this is making publishing a lot more accessible.

This article is helpful since it doesn't just tell you "how to get in" but it also gives the reader the disclaimer that not all you do in publishing is editing, there are other departments.

I find it interesting to see from both sides of the argument: those who've achieved a masters degree, and those who think it's irrelevant. What I get from this article is that there are two common ways to get into publishing. One, have a masters degree and get hired into an entry-level job while already knowing everything that you need to, and get quickly get a promotion. Second, start from below and work your way up. It may take time, but you'll learn the same things the person with a masters paid thousands of money for.

What I like about this article is that the (original) author did not sugar coat anything. She revealed that trying to get into Publishing is hard work, full of trials and error, and lots of rejections. But one thing that I'm getting from these articles is that you must persist. Someday, eventually, you will get your break

Bookjobs is a website where publishing positions, internships, and recruitment is posted so anyone interested can definitely check it out. It's like Monster.com specifically for publishers.

I specifically appreciated what the author said about publishing is not only for English majors. With the ever growing and expanding (though most think it's dying) industry of publishing, new departments open up, especially in the web and social media spectrum.
