The full-day event kicks off ONA’s Conference & Online Journalism Awards Banquet, which is shaping up to be the largest yet. The day starts with career training and tips from industry experts, then connects journalists and recruiters for one-on-one meetings.

Are you a recruiter?
Meet with experienced reporters, writers, producers, technologists, designers and editors from every platform, from online-only organizations to broadcast and print publications.

We’re inviting new graduates from dozens of universities that are training journalists in the latest digital media skills. You’ll also meet developers and designers fluent in the latest in programming languages and techniques. Expose your brand to the journalists of today and tomorrow.

Fees: $250 per company/organization for one table with two recruiters. Each recruiter may purchase a full-conference registration for $350 — a $49 discount on the ONA member rate.
