Say hello to our new Fall intern Jake!

August 31, 2022 Leave a comment

Hi everyone! My name is Jake, and I am the newest intern to join the team here at Oak Knoll. I am currently a Senior with a major in Marketing with a minor in English. While at the University of Delaware, I have been able to take a multitude of classes centered around marketing and writing, which have prepared me for exciting experiences in the publishing world. I have always known that I wanted to work in publishing, but was unsure where to start, until I became aware of the internship opportunity at Oak Knoll. It made perfect sense for me as someone who loved to read and often dreamed of working surrounded by books. From the second I walked in, I knew it would be the perfect fit for me. I found the quaintness of the small historic town along with the family owned business very familiar. Everyone was so kind and welcoming to me, especially the office dog Charlie.

I grew up in New England, which is very beautiful, but is quite far from New Castle, DE. This led to quite an unfortunate realization when I tried to squeeze all of my favorite books into my car which was already filled with college apartment necessities. If you ask any of my close family or friends, they will often explain how I am known to travel with a large selection of both books and notebooks. I have always loved reading and writing. When I am not doing school work or volunteering, I am often hiding in a local coffee shop somewhere reading peacefully and enjoying a strong cup of coffee. Poetry has always been one of my passions and I hope to one day publish a collection of written works.

I am grateful to everyone at Oak Knoll for this amazing opportunity and cannot wait to begin working on exciting projects here. During my time here as an intern, I hope to learn more about marketing for a small publishing house along with the inner workings of the antiquarian book selling world.
