All day
Fall 2018 networking trip to Washington, D.C.
October 4, 2018 (All day) to October 5, 2018 (All day)
Washington, D.C.

During networking trips, students make connections and seek advice on landing internship and job opportunities. Students visit workplaces, where they meet in small groups with alumni and others working in media and journalism fields. These visits aren't job or internship interviews but informal meetings with alumni eager to share career tips. Media and journalism outlets previously visited include The New York Times, CNN, Fox News, Edelman, Google, Facebook, PopSugar, Goop, and Cohn & Wolfe. Locations vary each trip. Students selected for the trip typically have already completed courses in the MJ-school and have internship or related experience.

The trips are open to undergraduate majors and master's students admitted to the MJ-school. Students may participate in one trip per year.

The Fall 2018 MJ-school networking trip schedule is:

  • Washington, D.C., on Oct. 4-5 (students should arrive by 5 p.m. on Oct. 4; employer visits will be on Oct. 5)
  • New York City on Oct. 17-19 (students should arrive by 5 pm Oct. 17; employer visits will be Oct. 18 and 19)
  • Atlanta on Nov. 8-9 (students should arrive by 5 pm Nov. 8; employer visits will be Nov. 9)


The MJ-school pays for the hotel stay for students on networking trips. Students are responsible for transportation to and from the trip location and incidental expenses such as food. Travel assistance is available for students with financial need.
