"This is my solid career advice for those starting out: Take anything that you can get."
Hearst's acquisition of Hachette Fillapachi's US titles went through today. Which means staffers at Elle, Woman's Day, Elle Decor, and several other mags will be moving over to the Hearst Tower within the next six to nine months, reports Min Online. Hearst is also buying about 300 international titles from Hachette. Most of those deals have also gone through, except for the China acquisition. (That one will happen later on this year.) It's too soon to say who's staying or who's going at Elle, but we're confident Carol Smith will be calling her favorites from the old company about making a move to Harper's Bazaar. So expect some shakeups at both magazines.
