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. 

The next career fair is Oct. 28, 2020. Employers interested in registering for the fair can go to After you register, you should receive a link from CareerFair Plus that allows you to set up your schedule and accept resumes before the fair. Student registrations will begin on Oct. 18 and continue through Oct. 26.
