**Applications have now closed for the 2017 Ed Buddy System. If you have received an email that you have been matched, be sure to attend the Buddy System Happy Hour on Tuesday, June 20 from 7-9 p.m. at Overlook Lounge (225 E. 44th St., New York, NY 10017). Check back next spring when applications re-open!**
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, Ed is launching The Ed Buddy System – a program where recent college graduates will be matched with an Editorial Assistant/Associate 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.
Interested recent graduates can fill out the application here.
Interested EAs/AEs can fill out the application here. (Great career karma!)
Note: Application Requirements for recent graduates:
-Must be a college or grad school graduate
-Must be out of school no longer than 12 months
-Must be living in, or have plans to move to, NYC (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
