Vibe‘s Jermaine Hall on What It Really Takes to Be EIC

In the same year that music mags Blender and Giant folded, Vibe shuttered, as well. But, luckily for the iconic mag, it was snapped up by a private equity firm, and editor-in-chief Jermaine Hall was brought on to resurrect the pub. And resurrect it, he did.

In the latest installment of Mediabistro’s So What Do You Do?, Hall explains how the mag is winning again and gives advice to aspiring EICs.

“A lot of things that come with being editor-in-chief aren’t necessarily drilled down into the day-to-day tasks,” he said. “It’s a lot of schmoozing; it’s a lot of fixing relationships; it’s a lot of bartering; it’s a lot of people skills, I would say. It’s really going out there to be the ambassador of the brand on all levels.”

How to Impress Your Boss in a Performance Review

Asking your boss for a performance review may sound scary, but it often comes with unexpected bonuses. For example, a review may give you the opportunity to highlight your own, perhaps unnoticed, accomplishments, like that story you broke or interviews you’ve nailed.

“If your boss isn’t involved in your day-to-day, she might not know what you’re working on,” said Rachel Dotson, content manager for ZipRecruiter.com. “A review forces her to sit down with you, so you can communicate your impact and value to the company.”

To really impress your boss, prepare in advance a list of individual accomplishments or your role in team accomplishments.

The Right Answers To Dreaded Job Interview Questions

We’ve all faced those questions in interviews. You know, the ones that make you hesitate, stumble, or just plain feel like you won’t get the job if you answer them incorrectly. For example:

Why did you leave your last position?

You can blame the economy, a lack of growth opportunity, the position changing dramatically after you took it, or the functions being misrepresented during your interview. But the key point here is to be honest — not just for your conscience, but for your career. “Transparency is the best policy with these types of questions,” said Matt Tovrog, a partner at Bell Oaks Executive Search, “because a former boss can easily be contacted as a reference check.”
