Journalism Career Fair

Each year, about 200 students meet with employers from dozens of companies during our career fair. Students and employers interact in mini interviews, which 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. The career fair is an excellent way to network with the next generation of journalism and communications professionals. 

The next career fair is Nov. 9, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Employers who would like to participate should contact Steve Rottinghaus at
