Cosmopolitan’s First Career Insert: CosmoCareers

Stay with us, ladies. We understand Cosmopolitan may not be the favorite publication of the Career Girl demographic. Frankly, we’d moved on from Cosmo as well, and counted our favorite fashion and girly mag as Marie Claire for many years. But we took notice last year when Marie Claire’s famed Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles left her desk there to take the helm at Cosmopolitan.

One of Joanna’s first changes? To implement Cosmo’s first ever “CosmoCareers” this month, an insert with Sheryl Sandberg on the cover. Trust us, it’s worth a read!
