DeFiore and Company, a mid-sized, high-profile literary agency based in Flatiron/Union Square, seeks assistant/associate. At least one year prior related experience in mainstream book publishing essential-and a background in foreign rights particularly helpful. The right person will have a mix of qualities not often found in one person: an ability to track multiple details, an ease with a calculator and computer, and a creative spirit and discerning editorial eye. Duties may include: routine office work (filing, phones, typing, mailings), financial tracking work (keeping track of payments due and learning database system for tracking payments and contracts), extensive work keeping our international co-agents up-to-date with materials about our current and upcoming titles. All the while you will need to keep our clients and their publishers dazzled with your grasp of things. You will learn everything about the literary agent business, get to know editors and authors, and will be encouraged, in time, to develop your own clients. Salary commensurate with experience. Please respond by E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with resume and cover letter and please include the word "resume" in your subject line.
