"I just found out about Ed2010 yesterday, and you are already my heroes. Magazine people helping wannabe magazine people... free of charge? This is absolutely unheard of. I'm poor (freelance fact-checker and assistant stylist), but I had to make a tiny donation just 'cause y'all are so mind-bogglingly awesome. I know mind-bogglingly" is not a real word, but sometimes awesomeness defies the laws of grammar. Peace out." –Connie

"THANK YOU! Thank you for the site, thank you for the newsletter, thank you for maintaining a sense of humor, keepin' it real, and basically keeping the dim light of hope lit for people that live outside," –Leslie

"I totally depend on Ed2010 for openings, and whenever I have a magazine question, I always ask you and it's sooo helpful. I had an interview with a book publishing company and I didn't know if I should go into that, and I got an answer from you (which is why I'm at a magazine internship now!)." –Jenny

Welcome interns, junior editors, middle-level editors, senior-level editors, and everyone else striving to be a successful magazine editor.

THE DIRT ON Ed2010: We are a community of young, eager magazine editors and magazine-editor wannabes who want to learn more about the industry so we can fulfill our dreams of being in top editing positions. Every month or so we meet at a bar for happy hour to meet each other and swap job info, gossip, and tips. Happy Hours take place in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Des Moines, Toronto, Indianapolis, Birmingham, Miami, Minneapolis, Washington, D.C., Boston, San Francisco, Tampa Bay, Seattle, Louisville, Austin, Baltimore, Kansas City, Portland/Eugene, and Philadelphia. The New York chapter also hosts panel discussions and Speed Networking. Check out our events page to see what's going on this month. As of Fall 2003, our Ed on Campus groups help college students lay the groundwork for a great editorial career.

Ed2010 is also an online community. We keep you up-to-date on the latest industry news, gossip, and whisper jobs™ by sending out a daily email to all our members. We report salaries so you will know how much money to negotiate for when landing a new gig. Our Ask Ed columns offer step-by-step guidance on subjects such as moving to NYC, getting a promotion, and the value of temping. Transcripts from past panels are available to download. Our mentoring program called 60-Minute Mentors helps you to give each other advice about landing your first jobs, getting promoted, or even switching fields. Through her blog, Ed's Girl on the Hunt shares the saga of hunting for that first EA job in NYC. And all day and night, Edsters share their thoughts on the Ed2010 Message Boards.

HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER? Ed2010 is more an underground community than an actual club. We send a daily email to keep you up to date on industry news, whisper jobs™, internships and Ed2010 events and programs. To sign up for Ed news, send a blank email to 5557-subscribe@zinester.com or click here. (And remember to check your spam folder after you sign up—it gets snagged there a lot.)

Archives of past newsletters can be read online here.

HISTORY: Ed2010 started in 1998 when Chandra and her friend Laura were editorial assistants and were constantly meeting recent grads or college students who were hungry for information about the magazine world. (Can I get a job if I don't "know" anyone? Will I get paid more than $25K a year? How long do I have to answer phones? Is it okay to change jobs after six months? How can I find out about jobs other than through HR?) We decided something had to be done. We started getting everyone together at a bar where we could share info about how to get new jobs, get promoted, and get the latest gossip. Everyone was most interested in finding out about job opportunities, so we started this website to tell each other about gigs we heard about that weren't on human resource department job boards or in The New York Times. It took off like crazy. Soon after, we started a newsletter where we sent out industry gossip and news each day. About 30 people were on it. Now the list includes almost 9,000!

GOALS: Ed2010 continues to grow and expand because you keep demanding more! Please let us know if you have any ideas about how to improve Ed2010. Send an email to Sunny with your ideas. If you have a website question, drop a line to Christie.

Enjoy!
