So, since I cannot seem to keep my mind off it for more than, oh, 3 minutes, I guess I should address the giant pink elephant in the room: finding a real job. In the challenging job market that new graduates are about to enter, you have to be prepared. Especially if you want to enter editorial. And fashion editorial? You really better get going.
Enter MediaBistro . The site contains salary surveys, tons of job postings, and all sorts of forums and advice. All for the field of media. Check it out and maybe gather a little bit of hope (like I do!) when I see the dozens of new jobs posted every single day.
