    If your dream is to become the EIC of a well-known magazine, edit tons of articles and constantly check their website and LinkedIn for job listings. A well-crafted pun might accomplish this with a single word or phrase. But, if it works for you, that is all that you need to be concerned about. At the end of the interview, always ask questions. Keep your magazine developing over time.

    The simple act of writing is something I often will take great enjoyment from, but right now I'd much rather have written than be writing.

Her writing brought to mind adjectives like dynamic and smart. Anyone who grew up in a tough neighborhood knows that reputation is what keeps people from bothering you.

    You should have some emotional distance by the time you return. Editor positions for magazines, especially popular magazines, can be hard to come by. Join FREE today. But, with intrusive editors, not fighting back guarantees that you will lose. Make sure to dress up, however, as it's always better to be overdressed than underdressed.
