    Put On Your Professional Party Faces 

    Hi, I’m Erin and this is me at work! (I’m the curly-haired gal in the middle.)

    Now, usually my work is not quite as glamorous as having my celebrity shot taken at a party with my lovely co-workers. In fact, in the interest of full disclosure, “me at work” usually involves me sitting on my couch/somewhere on campus/in some random coffee shop squinting at my computer screen for hours on end. But this week—this week was special.

    I work as an Associate Editor for The Daily Muse, an online magazine geared towards young, professional women (though we like our dude Muses too!) where you can go to get the best advice about your job search and career. As an editor, my weekly duties include working with my wonderful columnists to fine-tune their pieces, putting out our three weekly e-newsletters, coming up with new article ideas for the site, and writing when I find the time. So, lot’s of computer time. Oh, and I work virtually so even my interactions with my co-workers are predominantly over chat, with a few scattered conference calls.

    But as I said, this week was a very special one. Our bi-coastal team was all brought together in NYC to celebrate our 1-year birthday as a company. While it was certainly a big week for the company, it was also a big week for me personally. I’ve been with the company since almost the beginning, so it was a chance for me to celebrate one year working for a company (and still going strong!). That feels like a pretty big deal at this stage in my life.

    The party itself was a great success. A bunch of our investors, advisers, and partners in New York were there, as well as some of our writers and staffers who I haven’t gotten to meet before now. We all enjoyed sponsored food and drink, networked like pros, and made a big announcement about what’s next for the company (more on that to come). It all felt very glamorous. Besides the party, we also got to spend some time all working face-to-face in our new New York co-working space, and doing some team learning activities.

    There will be plenty of internship musings to come (pun intended), but for now I just want to welcome you to the next few months of my Daily Muse adventure. So, new friends. Prep the disco ball, put on your professional party faces, and get ready for a good time. The Daily Muse is ready to rock your career and mine—and have fun doing it.

    Change of Venue 

    What started out as a lunch date turned into an opportunity for a day working in the main office of Time, Inc. As I reflect on yesterday, I realize how valuable it will be in the future.
