About ONA21 Career Day

Who is this for: Interested job seekers as well as people curious about journalism graduate programs and fellowship opportunities. You do not have to be registered for ONA21 to participate in this event. This is open to anyone, anywhere, but opportunities may have restrictions for applying.

What to expect:

  • Recruiter/fellowship/education program video chat rooms + “learn more” sessions
  • Scheduling of one-on-one interviews
  • Programming specific to professional development needs
  • Interactive networking via the ONA platform and a group event to close the day

What is required:

  • Attendees can spend the entire three hours, or 15 minutes learning more about an outlet, company or program that interests you.
  • In terms of technical requirements, we recommend a laptop or desktop with the latest version of Google Chrome or Firefox for the best possible experience, plus the ability to stream video. Your experience will be likely be fine from a mobile tablet as this will be browser-based, but a smartphone will not provide you with a quality experience.

Who will be there: Fellow opportunity seekers, recruiters, fellowship directors, journalism graduate school leaders
