Chandra is the founder & president of Ed2010.com. She founded Ed2010 in 1998 when she was an assistant editor at Glamour. Ed2010 began as a group of a dozen friends who met periodically at bars in New York City and exchanged emails about job openings and industry gossip. The group grew and stayed connected via an email newsletter, then a geocities chat board, and now the lifestyle and jobs website it is today. Via Ed2010, Chandra speaks frequently to college students, recent graduates, and junior editors about how to get started in the industry and how to move up the editorial ladder.
Chandra is also the founder of Talent Fairy, a talent recruitment agency that places editors and writers in creative jobs in all areas of publishing/media. The service is free for all registered Ed2010 users.
