Upcoming NAHJ Events
NAHJ DC and the Washington Association of Black Journalists closed 2016 together in a festive holiday party at Public Bar in Dupont Circle on Wednesday Dec. 14. They continued the collaboration and spirit of comradery from the first joint NABJ-NAHJ Convention and Career Fair. Members of both groups celebrated the end of the year and welcomed a new year with treats, sweets, and networking.
NAHJ DC is once again partnering with other journalism organizations and Georgetown University’s Master in Journalism program to hold the next Washington D.C. Journalism Job Fair. The fair is scheduled for Saturday, March 25, 2017 and will run from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Each year we count on our members to help make this annual event a success. Now in its fourth year, this job fair has given hundreds of people, including our members, the chance to make important connections and secure jobs at the best companies in the D.C. area. We hope you can ask your company to consider recruiting at the fair. We’re offering them an early-bird registration rate of $100 until Friday, February 24.

NAHJ DC members gathered at El Tamarindo restaurant on Tuesday, Nov. 15 for a post-election mixer. Surrounded by colorful paintings of iconic Latino artists, members enjoyed pupusas and happy hour drinks. The event also served as a fundraiser for the Charlie Ericksen Internship supplement fund. The supplement helps the chapter financially support Latino students who are interning at DC-area media outlets.
We are excited to share that the fourth annual Washington D.C. Journalism Job Fair will be held on Saturday, March 25 from 10:00am-2:00pm at the Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies campus, located at 640 Massachusetts Ave NW, Washington, D.C.
Last year, more than 20 companies recruited and hired job seekers at this fair. Participating companies included The Washington Post, Politico, Telemundo and NBC4.
The job fair is hosted by the Georgetown University Master of Professional Studies in Journalism program in partnership with the D.C. chapters of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the Asian American Journalism Association, the Society of Professional Journalists, the National Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual Journalists Association, the Washington Association of Black Journalists, and the Journalism and Women Symposium.
NAHJ DC is pleased to announce our Fall 2016 Charlie Ericksen Journalism Supplement winner Valeria Massarelli. We had a highly competitive pool of applicants this semester and were very impressed with Valeria’s story and passion for journalism. She will receive a supplement worth $500 to be placed on a Metro SmarTrip card and pay for her NAHJ membership. She will also be matched with a mentor who works as a journalist in the DC area.
