Elinor Cohen Account Manager

Get To Know Elinor

What was your first job?

I babysat for a while and then worked as a camp counselor. Both situations taught me that I should definitely not be in the childcare industry. My first paycheck-type job was working for Abercrombie & Fitch in the stockroom. Never again.

What is your favorite movie or TV show?

How could I choose one? I love SharkTank, but I’m also a House of Cards kind of girl. As for movies, I love anything This is the End, or basically anything with Seth Rogen.

What is your favorite book?

I loved The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. I’m really into reading about different cultures, and this was a great expose of Chinese American families in San Francisco in the mid 1900s

What are your favorite kinds of projects to work on?

I’m a creative soul, so I like anything that lets me be innovative and think outside of the box. I like guidelines, but I also like when they can be adjusted.One of my favorite mottos is, "The only constant is change."

What websites can you not live without?

Facebook, CNN, MindBodyGreen, BuzzFeed, and NYTimes.com

What do you like best about the people you work with?

They are laid-back, professional, and passionate about the work they do.

What is the homepage of your browser set to? Why?

Google. I’m boring. Don’t judge me.

If you could be a superhero, what would your superpowers be?

I would love to be able to read other people’s minds. Then I would give people weird looks based on what they were thinking about me.

What unique quality do you bring to Smartsites?

I have an editorial background, which means I focus on words and the construction of prose to a fault. My main goal when looking at a phrase or sentence is to think of how a concept can be conveyed in as few words as possible.Words can be powerful, and we should use them to our advantage.

Who inspires you to be successful?

Besides Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City, anyone?) I would say my dad. He came from an impoverished family in Poland to Israel and then eventually to the US. He established a name for himself as a well-respected businessman in the electrical industry and genuinely loves his work.

Do you have any pets?

Unfortunately yes. My sister’s cat lives with us. His name is Bernie. He is loud and obnoxious and an unnecessary addition to the family (in my opinion).

If you could have any job, what would it be?

I would be the editor-in-chief of either Time Magazine or MarieClaire. I’m into the glossies.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?

New York City, no questions asked.

What is the most played song on your music playlist or what song describes your life?

For now (because it’s always changing) I will say my favorite song is “Somebody Loves You” by Betty Who. It takes such a positive and upbeat approach to common feelings that I think we all feel. The lyrics are encouraging without being overly cheesy, and the overall feeling is one which you can’t help but wiggle to.

If you were a fictional character, who would you be?

Ginger, from As Told By Ginger. As Told By Ginger was my favorite animated television show growing up. It aired on Nickelodeon. I suppose there wasn’t anything particularly unique about Ginger, but she was spunky and real. She had a couple of very close friends, and the three of them did their best to navigate their way through middle school. As a young weirdo, I definitely identified with Ginger.
