About Elana Lyn

About Elana Lyn:

I started Elana Lyn because I wanted to create a space filled with the advice I wish I had known when I graduated from college. After graduating, I became a paralegal at a law firm in New York City. Amidst stacks of briefs, blue books, and binders, I realized how much I missed writing, creativity, and truly having ownership of a project. While I checked brief citations and compiled velo-bound documents, scheduled posts would go out on topics relevant to millennial women.

Elana Lyn is a professional and personal development resource that provides millennial women with actionable job search, career, lifestyle, and wellness advice. More than 100 women from a wide range of industries have been interviewed in the Career Profile series. Elana Lyn has been featured in TIME, Teen VogueFortuneForbesWomen’s HealthFast CompanyBusiness InsiderMashableRefinery 29The Huffington Post, Brit + Co, Alley Watch, and more. 

My favorite series is my Career Profile series: I share the stories and career paths of women I admire. We can learn so much from like-minded, successful, driven women! I hope people learn something new every time they stop by Elana Lyn.
