dec08.jpgNews of people getting jobs has been frequenting our in box less often of late. So much so that when do hear about it we like to share! To wit: Sophie Donelson, frequent mediabistro.com class instructor (and sometime Econo Lodge partner) tells us she is returning to Hamptons Cottages & Gardens for the summer as editor.

Says Sophie: “Back in 2002, HC&G gave me my first job (it was from a MediaBistro listing!) and I worked there for two years with Newell Turner and Lockhart Steele before we all moved on. I’ve been freelancing for them on and off in the in-between years and this summer I was offered the top spot and so I’m returning for the season.” See, there are still nice media stories to be found!
