ICM Partners is searching for an assistant for one of their literary agents. This would be a relocation to New York, if you don’t already live there. But what a great opportunity and perhaps a book lovers dream. ICM represents bestselling authors of fiction, self-help, and non-fiction books. They also frequently work with a team of agents in Los Angeles exclusively seeking opportunities for film or television adaptations. What fun!
