Featured journalist: Erin Schulte
Today we are featuring Erin Schulte, a senior editor at Fast Company and the go-to guru behind their leadership coverage. In addition to writing and assigning the profiles of founders and executives from the most exciting startups and well-respected established companies, she also edits the thought-leadership pieces from the most creative minds shaping business. She's also had bylines in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, New York Post, Consumer Reports, Town & Country Travel, Maxim, Modern Bride, and a slew of other publications. Whew. Apparently she can write anything, for anyone.
Her portfolio reveals a knack for humor and enticing headlines, too: you'll want to read pieces like "How UGG Got Its Y Chromosome Back," or "Nest Collective's Neil Grimmer Gets A New Generation To Eat Its Spinach--And Like It." Yammer and Twitter are her social media weapons of choice, and she prefers to be pitched by email--"but with only one follow up, please."
By the way, she got her start writing weather and obits for The Lincoln Journal-Star in Nebraska, where she learned to use a typewriter and, at the time, they had only one computer with Internet access. My, how things have changed.
