For 20 years Ed2010 (or Ed for short) has been helping college students, recent grads, and young editors through our off-line workshops, networking events, and mentoring services. Online you’ll find a ton of great career advice, profiles of inspirational editors, whisper job listings, and everything you need to know to work and live as a magazine or online media editor in New York City. Amazingly, Ed is made up of a completely volunteer staff (take a look at us, above!).
The Back Story Ed2010 began in 1996 when Chandra Turner moved to NYC with a cliched story: She arrived on a one-way ticket from Indiana a week after college graduation with only two suitcases and a job as an intern. She quickly realized that in order to make it in this biz you had to know people. The only people she knew were fellow interns and friends from IU who came along with her. Over the next couple of years, she and another magazine friend pulled together friends of friends to happy hours downtown Manhattan to share magazine gossip and news about jobs and internships. The idea was that if we all knew each other, then we were connected. By helping others, you gain what Ed calls good Career Karma. Eventually those happy hours turned into bigger happy hours, events, and this website. The spirit of Ed continues to this day.
What does Ed2010 stand for? Ah, Ed gets this question a lot. See, back in 1998 or so when the group of friends came together, the year 2010 felt ages away. We dreamed of being big, successful magazine editors by that date. Well, it’s come and gone. And most of the editors from the original group did go on to fulfill their career dreams, but we couldn’t abandon the mission. So Ed2010 lives on even if the name itself is outdated. (We’ve considered changing it to Ed20TK but it just doesn’t have much of a ring to it!)
So whatever your goals are in this crazy but exciting industry, we hope that Ed helps you meet them. Please connect with us on our social media and let us know how you’re doing. We always love a good success story!
