Career Expo 2016

Columbia Journalism School's 2016 Career Expo was April 2, 2016 at Roone Arledge Auditorium, Columbia's Morningside campus. 

More than 325 editors, producers, alumni recruiters and hiring managers attended to make this the biggest journalism job fair in the school's history. See the list.  

This year we welcomed editors from Turkey, China, India, the U.K, and throughout the United States who came to Columbia to meet the next generation of journalistic talent for newsroom postions now or in the future. 

The Expo showcased the tremendous range of media operating today, from legacy media to start-ups. Legacy media included The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Al Jazeera, ABC News and the BBC. Newer ventures like Bustle and Elite Daily, podcast programs Gimlet and Panoply, and topic-focused investigative sites like The Marshall Project, The Trace, Chalkbeat and The Intercept also joined in. Spanish-language media -- EFE News service, ImpreMedia, Telemundo and Univision - took part to find bilingual journalists for their newsrooms. 

Companies were advertising a range of job opportunities including full-time jobs, internships, stringer positions and freelance assignments. Employers represented a range of subject areas including health and science, business and economics, investigative journalism, sports, weather, media, technology, politics and government, general assignment, metro and community news, arts, culture and entertainment, food, travel and fashion, Jewish issues, international news and more.

Our 325 students were matched with companies for 20-minute interviews throughout the day. As students closed the event at 5 p.m., some said that they had already been invited by recruiters for follow-up interviews.

We have already begun planning for the 2017 Career Expo on April 1, 2017. Watch this space for more inforrmation in the fall of 2016.
