Have questions on how to break into the field or get a paid internship/job? Simple or impolitic ones that you couldn't ask a boss or hiring manager/editor? Questions about newsroom "culture" or the tacit knowledge required to network or interview for a job? Sisi Wei and Jeremy Merrill, both less than four years out of undergrad, will be giving students and early-career journalists any knowledge and job-seeking advice they need to help them become designer/developer/data journalists. We'll also pair you up with other young, employed grads for a few rounds of speed Q&A so you can get different perspectives and a chance to ask questions in in a small group or one-on-one.
To make this a safe space to ask silly questions, we're asking mid-career journalists and people with hiring power not to attend. Non-young'uns and young'uns-at-heart who are trying to enter the field laterally are welcome to join, but the session will be geared towards the experience of recent graduates (including generally-applicable job search and resume tips), so it may not be as helpful to you.
