Do you have questions on how to break into the field, get an internship, or land a job? Simple or impolite ones that you couldn’t ask a boss or hiring manager/editor? Questions about newsroom “culture” or how to network or interview for a job? Get honest advice and input from journalists who once had the same questions you have now. We’re trying to create an informal panel discussion — and encouraging people with hiring power not to attend. Come with your questions, or submit them in advance anonymously: bit.ly/2tl6gY8
