Next Stop: Your Magazine Dream Job

Love for Ed

“Chandra knows everyone–everyone hiring, everyone hunting, everyone who might be someday. But more importantly, she knows everyone so well that she connects the right someones, setting up the perfect match for happy workers and happy managers. She also believes in young talent, and what they are capable of, which helps people on both sides satisfy their needs now AND in the future.” — Wendy Naugle, Executive Editor, Glamour

“I’ve known Chandra for 15 years now, and she’s never failed to astonish me. She’s one of the whip-smartest, most-resourceful people I know. With Chandra, it’s more of that thing where you wonder what she wouldn’t be good at. Is there a challenge her problem-solving nature and canny outlook couldn’t triage? I’ve witnessed her redesign magazines, refashion teams, pivot organizations, mentor young talent (a biggie!) and, all the while, remain the most pleasant person to be around. I don’t think she’s ever missed an email reply in her life. The 12 or so people out there who don’t know Chandra are truly missing out.”  — Tanner Stransky, creative at Apple

“Chandra’s energy and expertise will inspire you! She can clearly identify your talents and help you focus on bringing those talents forward with specific, actionable steps, including who to talk to and what jobs to apply for. ” — Mindy Walker, Content Director, Cheree Berry Paper 

“I am truly not sure that I would have gotten where I am today (senior editor at Cosmo, baby!) without having met Chandra. I was her Ed2010 Trust Fund winner in college, and from that moment on, I felt like I had a permanent space under her wing. But that’s the crazy thing—everyone has a space under her wing. I barely have time to respond to Slacks, but Chandra was running a magazine while still reading resumes for thirsty college students, teaching classes on how to ace your edit tests, hooking college grads up with interviews and jobs, and truly acting like a fairy godmother of the publishing world. But she and Ed2010 are, as cliche as it sounds, dream-making powerhouses” — Chloe Metzger, Senior Editor, Cosmopolitan

“The hard fact is there is nothing more brutal than the New York media scene—esspecially when it comes to the world of magazines. Chandra helped me, and countless others, edit resumes and find dream jobs. She inspired and coached us when all we had was a dream. All of us wouldn’t be where we are if it wasn’t for her—and we’re forever grateful.” — AJ Black, Senior Content Strategist

“I’m so glad Chandra started Ed2010, because it not only provided me with advice about my resume and how to approach interviews but it also led me to apply for the Editorial Intern position at Parenting. I applied and got the job! Since then, I’ve grown to be a well-rounded editor. What’s more, I was lucky enough to work with Chandra. Learning from her helped shape my editing skills and my career. Thanks, Chandra (and Ed2010).” — Megan Troise, Senior Editor, All Creatures

“I truly would not be where I am today without Ed2010. I got my very first internship via Ed2010 back in 2009 at Fitness magazine, and it helped kickstart my editorial career. I learned so much from the Ed site, and I later became president of UNC’s Ed2010 chapter to be more involved. Since that fateful first internship, I’ve climbed the ladder to site director, and I have Ed (and Chandra behind the scenes!) to thank for all the help over the years.” — MaryAnn Barone, Site Director, Eat This, Not That

“I don’t think I would have been able to accomplish all the things that I have in my career without Chandra Turner. As an avid follower of Ed2010 in my college days, the advice she and her team of editors shared with young hopefuls like myself through blog posts, intern events, and edit test classes was extremely valuable, and helped connect interns with other people their age looking to break into the industry. I met Chandra in person at her edit test class, which completely transformed my career. I learned so much in that class that I still use to this day, and Chandra was such a positive, inspiring, knowledgable teacher who genuinely cared about each student…. Chandra has always been there to answer my questions via email, recommend me to a friend for a job or informational, and just see how I am. I still consinder Chandra a mentor, one of the best I have ever had, and I am thankful to her for helping me get my foot in the door to build my career to what it is now. I could not have done it without her.”  — Brooke Schuldt, Social Media Editor, Real Simple

“I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge how grateful I am for Ed2010. I got my first internship at Glamour six years ago through whisper jobs. Now, as a managing editor, I’m constantly hiring freelancers and interns. Without fail, every time I post a listing I get amazing candidates with out all of the nonsense ones. Thank you for making the hiring process so much easier and fun.” — A.L.

“Chandra is the ultimate mentor. She helped me get my first magazine job—and when I was offered another position a few years later, the company said that Chandra’s recommendation played a big part in their decision. She has connected me with dozens of people in the industry, is always full of practical career wisdom, and is just a delight to work with. I seriously don’t know where where my career would be without her!” — Chrisanne Grise, Senior Editor, The New York Times Upfront
