Why you think you’re right for “The Job:” Beyond my fashionista knowledge, I can help Cosmo, or any Hearst Magazine, beef up its career and finance content, which currently makes up only 18% of Cosmo's editorial. Women must be fiercely independent and financially sound even if they're loved up. Plus I can re-engage the 40+ demo. I would love to write an entrepreneurial column for one of Hearst's magazines, called Ms. Independent, Self Vested or Start Something.
