Last night we received an email with a simple request: “Dear GalleyCat, tell me how to find a job at BEA 2011.”
The anonymous letter writer continued: “I’ve been looking for a lit blog that does advice columns and have come up short, so I am emailing you. I’ll be attending BEA 2011 for work. I love my job, I love editing, I love my boss, but I work in non-New York and would like to transition into trade … preferably in New York. I’m trying to figure out how I can best use my time at BEA 2011 to make connections and get my name out.”
