Kate White, Former ‘Cosmo’ Editor, Dishes Career Advice in New Book

Now that Kate White is no longer the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan to focus on speaking engagements, digital media and her books, White’s been dishing advice to women in her new book.

The author of I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This: Success Secrets Every Gutsy Girl Should Know explained to The New York Post:

“We’ve made incredible strides, but I think there are challenges that women face that are not the same for men. I think sometimes we can still have that good-girl tendency not to grab the seat next to the boss at a meeting or not to talk on that project.

Joanna Coles Named Editor-in-Chief of ‘Cosmopolitan’

As Kate White steps down as editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan, the magazine made famous by the late Helen Gurley Brown will have a new editor in charge.

Joanna Coles was named the new editor at the top of the masthead; she’ll be leaving her job running the ship as editor-in-chief of Marie Claire, another Hearst title.

As per The New York Post, the change is happening pretty quickly. The November issue of Cosmo will close this week and then White will work on consulting projects for Hearst. On Monday Coles will begin her new job.

According to the newspaper, White’s departure is voluntary. The author of eight novels said, “I went to David Carey in January and told him I wanted to step down by the end of the year.”

“I wrote the book aware that I was going to be leaving,” she added. White’s latest book, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This, will be released on September 18.
