Describe your career path since graduation.
I interned at several magazines and went on numerous informational interviews until I had made enough of a name for myself and was offered a full-time editing job at National Geographic. Leaving Boston a couple days after graduation made the job hunt especially challenging, since all of my contacts during grad school had been made in Boston. It was a long, slow process but I eventually made it into my chosen career and worked my way up to my current role (travel editor at U.S. News & World Report).
