Jobs with Oxford University Press India - Updated

Oxford University Press India intends to hire Editorial Trainees for its Schools Division. Trainees will have to work in the Greater Noida office of the firm. They are looking for people interested in full-time work who have already been awarded an M.A. or will be awarded one at the end of this academic year. They have expressed a preference for students of English, but candidates from other disciplines (especially those who have done the Certificate Course in Editing and Publishing) may also apply.

A team from OUP India intends to visit Jadavpur University on 14 and 15 March 2013, though this is yet to be confirmed. They intend to display a small presentation about their firm, followed by an editing test. The presentation is expected to start at 2 p.m. on 14 March 2013. The test is supposed to start at 3 p.m. the same day, and will go on for at least two hours. I am entirely unaware of its format or contents. Those who qualify in the test will be asked to appear in an interview on 15 March 2013.

Students and alumni of the Editing and Publishing course, as well as final-year M.A. students who might be interested, are requested to notify me by e-mail by Friday, 1 March 2013. If you have not sent your CVs to me already, please do so as soon as possible. My e-mail address is

When you send me an e-mail with your CV, please use this format for the subject line of the e-mail and the file name of the CV:

<First Name> <Middle Name> <Surname> - Curriculum Vitae

CVs should be sent as PDFs or MS Word documents only.

The presentation and the test will take place in the PG-I classroom of the Department of English, Jadavpur University.
