A weekly roundup of job-hunting tips, career advice and interesting articles relevant to the magazine industry and being an editor.
• "Bored People Quit" on Rands in Repose. Required reading for editors in charge of a team. If you don't want to lose your best editors, that is.
• "99 Tips That Will Help You Land a Job" by James Clear on Passive Panda (via Alltop). From having the right mindset to interview tips to how to negotiate a salary, some great gems.
• "Help! I Can't Land a Job Interview" by Rosa E. Vargas on YouTern's The Savvy Intern blog (via @ginidietrich). I strongly urge everyone to heed Vargas' advice about resumés: Yours must "outdistance" others – it is a marketing tool, not a list of everything you've ever done.
• "Orgasm Guaranteed: What I Learned While Freelancing at Cosmopolitan" by Katherine Goldstein on Slate. An amusing account of life in the fact-checking trenches.
