Ed knows it isn’t always easy to figure out where to live, how to find the best happy hours that won’t break your unemployed budget, and how to get your foot in the door of the magazine industry. (Not to mention what to wear to an interview!)
To help steady you from stumbles, The Ed Buddy System is back for 2013 – a program where recent college graduates will be matched with an Editorial Assistant/Assistant Editor in New York. Your Buddy will aid you on the way to editorial and city-living success by being more than a mentor, but a friend, too.
If you’ve already submitted your application for the Buddy System since last year, we’ve received it (but if you want to resend, feel free to — Ed keeps everything, but could miss something here-or-there). If you’re applying now, please make sure you meet the requirements:
-Must be a college or grad school graduate as of May 2013
-Must be out of school no longer than 12 months
-Must be living in, or have plans to move to, NYC by summer 2013 (you want to actually meet
your buddy, not just connect to them on Twitter)
-Must not be a current or past EA
-Must be dead-set on being in magazines (digital or print)
(Sorry there are no exceptions to these requirements!)
Want some great career Karma? Apply to be a mentor for the Buddy System! We welcome any Editorial Assistant or Assistant Editor from any magazine or Web site. Download the application here, and mail it to email@example.com
