Journalism Career Fair

The career fair is an excellent way to network with the next generation of journalism and communications professionals. Each year, J-School students meet with employers from dozens of companies during our career fair. Students and employers interact in this relaxed setting that helps employers narrow the field from the résumés they receive and saves time by visiting with students on campus. At our career fair, you will meet talented young journalists and communicators who want to speak with you about opportunities to gain real-world experience at your organization. Students are looking for both internships and entry-level jobs. 

We appreciate your ongoing support of the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications. 

Career Fair is March 4

The next career fair is March 4 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Students will be able to submit resumes in advance and schedule multiple interviews and informational sessions with selected organizations through the CareerFair Plus app. Before the fair, students are encouraged to research the companies.
