If you had the chance to ask the Editor-in-Chief of ELLE anything about breaking into the publishing industry, what would it be?
At 1pm tomorrow, Lorraine Candy is sharing her lunch break with you via a Facebook Q&A, to answer questions about kick-starting your career in the fashion industry. From her very first journalism job at The Cornish Times, aged 16, to her 11-year (and counting) tenure at the helm of ELLE UK – via The Times and Cosmopolitan – Lorraine is an industry veteran. Nedless to say, she knows the secrets to making your CV stand out from the crowd.
Join Lorraine as she chats about the life lessons she’s learned during her career, the most productive ways to approach magazines about internships and job vacancies, what you actually need on your CV (and what you don’t), how to be brave in asking for what you want in the workplace, what it’s like behind the scenes at ELLE magazine and what we have in store for you for the coming season – from the secrets of the ELLE Fashion Cupboard to which celebrities will be on our forthcoming covers.
How can you get involved in the conversation? Like Lorraine’s fanpage and stay tuned for the Q&A to begin. Then, join Lorraine live at 1pm tomorrow as she answers all your burning career questions.
