Ed2010 is a group for young, aspiring magazine editors. When surfing the site you can find countless informative facts relating to who they are, jobs, events (such as book clubs, panels and workshops) and especially, internships. Ask Ed, a section in the site, poses an opportunity to post a question, and hopefully, (if its a good one!) get a reply that is directly posted on the site.
The question of the day was…”How do I get a spring internship?”
Ed said that editors do not usually look to hire spring interns until december. So getting a head start is good, but not nesessary. “Go to the Ed on Campus internship page—at the end of the year. Apply for all that look appealing to you. Write tailored cover letters (don’t even think about sending a form letter where you plug in the name of the magazine!) and make sure that you send your stuff to the right person. It’s really that easy.”-Ed2010.com
Also under the Ask Ed portion of the site, there are archives of previously asked questions, such as “Landing a NYC job from outside New York,” “What makes a good internship cover letter,” and “How should my resume be designed?” Even if you don’t post a question, Ask Ed is a good way to get answers to questions that maybe you didn’t even know you had. So…ask away, look for answers in different places, and for the ones looking for a job for the spring-take a breather. Enjoy the fall air, and start applying when the winter comes.
