If you use Rapportive it can be helpful when guessing email addresses. If you've gotten the email address right in your send-to line in your gmail, it will pull up all the relevant information about that person. Won't work every time, but it can definitely be helpful! If you don't use Rapportive, you should. Learn more about it here! http://www.thedailymuse.com/toolsskills/3-tools-that-tell-you-everything-you-need-to-know/

@Rachel I also like a lot of what this article has to say about it. Nothing like a good old spreadsheet! http://unbounce.com/content-marketing/blog-editorial-calendar/

Hey @Rachel, great question! It's certainly no easy feat. I've never come across any specific resources on the subject, but I'll do some digging and let you know if I find anything.

In this situation, I think one of the best things would be to talk to other editors about how they do it. Sit down with editors you respect and pick their brains about some of the challenges you face and how they've dealt with them.

This is all SUCH valuable advice. I got my first job at a start-up straight out of college, and I think doing every single one of these things played a part in making that happen. I interned for a year and a half with them before graduating, was always jumping on to help wherever I was needed, and was very clear with my bosses about my desire to keep working with the team in whatever capacity possible.

I love playing the cook-with-what-you-have game! It's like a delicious puzzle! Looks like this turned out great.

Networking events are so challenging for me, but these tips seem really pragmatic and like they could really help me out! I especially love the idea of a really short follow-up email to set another time to meet-up. I'm really terrible at following up because I always feel like I need to write out this long email. That seems much more manageable—and a good way to keep my name in that person's mind!

If the weather is nice, enough, I would be inclined to go on a little walk with her. Gets her away from the prying eyes of her colleagues, plus the fresh air (and change of scenery) might help her calm down.

Not sure if it's the most important, but I love the idea of #3—if you answer quickly then you don't have to waste time with the whole "Sorry this took so long" excuse.
