Melinda (Mindy) Carstensen, JOU 2012
Job: Associate editor at Babble.com, part of the Disney Interactive Family
What were you involved with at UF?
Outside of the Alligator, I wasn’t involved in a ton. When I first started at UF, I played the alto saxophone in the Gator marching band.
What did you think was the most beneficial class you took?
Reporting. The importance of detail, being accurate, writing clearly and knowing how to conduct an interview. I’ve come across many people during my entire experience in NYC that don’t know how to conduct interviews, talk to someone or put together a news article.
How did you end up at your current position?
I did my last semester of school in New York City and fell in love with the city. When I went home, I got a job offer in Florida, but I was really hesitant about it because NYC was the place I wanted to end up. I came here without a job and crashed on my friend’s futon while I interned at Weight Watcher’s Magazine. I did that for a while until the opportunity at Babble came my way. I fell in love with the start-up environment, and the fact that Disney was backing the company. I started interning at Babble in October 2012 and despite other job opportunities coming my way during my internship, I decided to stay and hope they’d hire me. They hired me in April. Just last month, they promoted me to an associate editor position.
