O’Connor leaving Forbes for new job
Clare O’Connor, a Forbes staff writer for the past seven-and-a-half years, is leaving the magazine.
Friday is her last day. O’Connor has a new job that starts in January.
Today’s my last day at @Forbes after 7.5 (!) years. I’m 🤐 re: my new gig for now, but I start in Jan and can’t wait. In the meantime I’m doing The Thing and sharing the mag stories I’m proudest of. Buckle up or mute me! 💅🏼
