The National Association of Black Journalists at UC Berkeley is hosting the first annual Media Career Fair, bringing recruiters from the top media companies around the country to pick fresh talent from the Bay Area. This free event connects journalists as well as journalism and media students in the Bay Area to media companies or news outlets that align with their career interests. The career fair is open to undergraduate and graduate students from universities and colleges in the Bay Area. Our desired goal is to match companies with the ideal candidates for internships, fellowships, and full-time jobs.
WHEN: Saturday, November 2, 2019 12:00-5:00PM
WHERE: Anna Head Alumnae Hall, UC Berkeley Campus
The Anna Head Alumnae Hall entrance for the NABJ Career Fair is located just behind the Maximino Martinez Commons, at 2520 Channing Way, Berkeley 94720. Please note that the official address of the Anna Head Alumnae Hall is 2537 Haste Street, just across from the famous People’s Park, but the best entrance is through the Maximino Martinez Commons.
Recruiters, Hiring Managers and Organization Representatives

Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
Mentors and Industry Influencers
The majority of student attendees will be graduates and undergraduates who will benefit greatly from a chance to have an in-depth conversation with you about their career paths.
