Kate Palmer is The Huffington Post’s Managing Editor. From 2012-2014, she was National Editor, managing teams of editors and reporters and contributing to site-wide editorial strategy. Prior to joining HuffPost, she was managing editor of The Onion, where she ran editorial operations for the satirical site and paper. In October 2012, Little, Brown published her team’s parody encyclopedia, The Onion Book of Known Knowledge. Prior to that, she was deputy managing editor at Foreign Policy Magazine in Washington, which won several National Magazine Awards and Folio Awards during her tenure. Her writing and commentary has appeared in BusinessWeek, NPR, CBS, among other outlets.
Throughout her college career and internships, Emily found herself mentoring internship hopefuls on how to connect with companies looking for talent. As more requests flooded in, she realized that the lack of information and confidence were widespread. Wanting to bridge that gap, Emily founded FindSpark. FindSpark is a community dedicated to setting up every young creative for career success through education, events, and networking. Since forming in December 2010, FindSpark has become the largest Meetup group for interns and recent grads in the country, producing a highly curated job board and the FindSpark Membership Program. Passionate about the power of relationships and their positive effect on our careers and happiness, Emily can be found at events, conferences and schools, speaking about the power of using social media, networking, and community to reach your goals. She has presented at The International Young Leaders Assembly at The United Nations, SXSW Interactive, Internet Week, Social Media Week, and over a dozen colleges and universities, including Columbia University, New York University, and Pratt Institute. Miethner and FindSpark have been featured in The New York Times, U.S. News, Fast Company, and Mashable.
