Next Stop: Your Magazine Dream Job

Emily Johnson

Events Associate

Emily first found Ed the summer after her sophomore year at Columbia when she decided to make good on her long-time love of magazines and start interning at them. Her first interview was with Chandra and Jess Strul at CosmoGIRL! and Emily wound up with her dream internship there. Afterwards, she liked working with them so much that she joined the Ed staff as a Mentors Associate. Emily works as a Senior Associate Editor at Cosmopolitan, and her work has appeared in publications such as Fit Pregnancy, Twist, Parents, and Men’s Health.

3 Things You Might Want to Know:1. Whenever she walks by a Barnes & Noble and doesn’t have anywhere to be, she’ll easily spend 3 or 4 hours reading every new magazine on the stands. 2. She’s a native New Yorker and is convinced that she’ll never leave the city – ever. 3. She’s met so many friends through Ed, because he’s the best.

3 Things You Really Didn’t Need to Know:1. She’s a die-hard Bruce Springsteen fan and has been to 19 of his concerts. 2. Until this year she refused to drink water, she’d only drink juice. 3. Her two favorite snack foods are ice cream and pickles–but never together!
