Since we launched, we’ve wanted to do a post on entry-level jobs at DailyCandy. We’ve been waiting for them to post something appropriate, and they finally have! The timing is perfect, since we just got some inside info on DailyCandy’s Fall internships, which we’ve posted about on One Day, One Internship. Daily Candy has extremely talented copywriters copywriters, so we’re going to use their words to tell you what they’re all about.
DailyCandy, a free, daily e-mail newsletter and website, is the insider’s guide to what’s hot, new, and undiscovered — from fashion and style to gadgets, travel, beauty, and more. As useful as it is entertaining, it’s like getting an e-mail from your clever, unpredictable, and totally in-the-know best friend. The one who knows about secret beauty treatments, must-have jeans, hot new restaurants — and always shares the scoop. DailyCandy is the creation of journalist Dany Levy, who, in 2000, found herself frustrated by the limits of magazine lead times. She developed a new, immediate way to share information while it was still fresh and actionable with an affluent, influential female audience.
DailyCandy is not only a phenomenal resource for savvy women, it’s also a marketer’s dream come true. DailyCandy has 2.6 million e-mail subscribers, and the majority of those subscribers come from a very valuable demographic. The stats on their subscribers are amazing – 95% are female, 64% are under 35, 92% have at least a college degree, and the median household income is $75,000. Can you say targeting? Even more impressive is that 96% of DailyCandy subscribers read their e-mails every day or almost every day, 63% forward articles to friends, and 66% bought something that they read about in DailyCandy. Those are some amazing numbers, and they have a lot to do with why Comcast has apparently shelled out $125 million for DailyCandy.
We won’t deny it, DailyCandy is our role model. What they’ve done with Fashion, Beauty & Fitness, Lifestyle, House & Home, Food & Drink, Travel, and Arts & Culture is what we are trying to do with entry-level jobs (and internships on One Day, One Internship). No, we don’t think that we’ll sell for $125 million, but we’re in love with their business model.
We’ve been watching the DailyCandy Jobs page like a hawk for many months. We’ve waited and waited for something that could be considered entry-level to be posted. Last week we saw that DailyCandy is looking for an Ad Traffic Coordinator in New York City. The job description says that they want someone with one year of work experience in advertising trafficking, but that screams entry-level to us. There are some pretty specific requirements and qualifications, but they don’t seem to be anything that a new grad couldn’t handle. The good news is that the job description is really comprehensive, so you should have a good idea if it’s something that you should apply for. If it is, send a cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
DailyCandy also has job openings for an Account Executive in Detroit and an Advertising Production Manager in NYC, but both of these jobs require 3 years of experience – something to aspire to. DailyCandy is an amazing company, and from what we hear they’re a lot of fun to work for. They don’t post entry-level opportunities very often, so jump on this while it’s still available!
