Miss FQ - - Career - Favourite part of your job?

Miss FQ in one sen­tence... For mil­len­ni­als, by mil­len­ni­als.

How did you get started in Bauer and at Miss FQ? I be­gan as an in­tern (like Ash­leigh), work­ing for Home mag­a­zine and Your Home & Gar­den mag­a­zine. From there, I was an ed­i­to­rial as­sis­tant at Cleo then Next and Good Health Choices be­fore work­ing on the launch of Miss FQ as the dig­i­tal and as­so­ciate edi­tor.

I get to meet so many tal­ented young women who work hard at their hus­tle — they in­spire me daily! I’m so pas­sion­ate about the Miss FQ voice we’ve cu­rated and I’m proud to work for a brand that shares pos­i­tive and em­pow­er­ing con­tent.

What goes through your head when choos­ing an out­fit in the morn­ing?

‘Can I take this from the of­fice, to a client meet­ing, to an Insta-wor­thy pho­tographed event?’ I check my cal­en­dar every morn­ing be­fore I leave for work, but the world of me­dia is hella spon­ta­neous so I have to be pre­pared! What are your swear-by beauty prod­ucts? Tril­ogy Ev­ery­thing Balm, $27.99 Ben­e­fit Roller Lash, $22 Oribe Gold Lust Dry Sham­poo, $72 MAC Lip­stick in Lady Dan­ger, $40


×× Per­fect your CV. It sounds ob­vi­ous but thor­ough proof-read­ing and clear, con­sis­tent and pro­fes­sional for­mat­ting goes such a long way. And speak­ing of pro­fes­sional, don’t in­clude a photo un­less specif­i­cally asked — in which case, keep the Rsa-pour of rosé out of the shot. ×× Tai­lor your cover let­ter to the job you are ap­ply­ing for. Tem­plates can be a use­ful start­ing point but it says noth­ing (or ev­ery­thing?) about you if it’s ob­vi­ous that all you’ve done is dropped the com­pany’s name into your greet­ing. If it’s a job you re­ally want, it shouldn’t be that hard for you to think about why. Say you’re ap­ply­ing for a job at Miss FQ. Men­tion­ing a shoot or piece of con­tent that truly res­onated with you will get you so much fur­ther than a generic state­ment about it be­ing “an ex­cit­ing ti­tle at the fore­front of fash­ion” — and not just be­cause we love hear­ing good things about our­selves.
