“Don’t be too picky about your first job” was just one of the insightful career tips Prevention fitness editor Natalie Gingerich entertained Edsters with at last night’s event, the first of the year. A packed Bartlett Room listened while Gingerich outlined her six points to make it from college to career. As someone who took a somewhat alternative route, beginning at her university’s alumni magazine, Gingerich says your first job can be anything, and that your second job is where you really begin planning for your career. Finding a specialty, such as fitness or health, Gingerich says, is the reason why she made it from editorial assistant to assistant editor in less than two years. Ed learned so much while he munched on Prevention-worthy fruits and veggies in the back. Ed was so impressed with the awesome questions his peeps asked the young editor. Judging by the success of the first event, Ed cannot wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the year–Stay tuned!
