About Ed2010 & The Talent Fairy
For 20+ years Ed2010 has been helping editorial content creators through our networking events, mentoring services, and job listings. We have now expanded to provide editorial recruiting and placement services.
What is Ed2010? Ed2010 (aka simply as “Ed”) 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 two suitcases and an internship. She quickly realized that to make it in the media you had to know people. The only people she knew were fellow interns and friends from Indiana University who came along with her. Over the next couple of years, she and another media pal pulled together friends of friends to happy hours downtown Manhattan to share magazine media gossip and news about editorial jobs and internships. Eventually those happy hours turned into bigger happy hours, events, and an organization with chapters all over the country.
What does Ed2010 stand for?Back in 90s when the group of friends came together, the year 2010 felt ages away. We dreamed of being hot-shot 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 (and career pivots!), but the name stuck.
Does Ed2010 still exist?Yes. But more in spirit than an actual organization. Ed still powers our award-winning job board where you’ll find job listings in traditional editorial, content marketing, brand publishing, social media marketing, and a variety of multimedia roles. Ed’s mentoring programs, advice, coaching, and events are now being managed by The Talent Fairy.
What is The Talent Fairy?Chandra Turner launched The Talent Fairy in 2019 to help brands tell their story, better. Editors know how to connect with an audience in an authentic, purposeful way. Brands want content that resonates with its audience and influences their behavior. The Talent Fairy’s mission is to connect editorial talent to brands. Are you hiring?
