All day
Spring 2019 networking trip to Charlotte
February 21, 2019 (All day) to February 22, 2019 (All day)
Charlotte, North Carolina

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 Spring 2019 MJ-school networking trip schedule is:

  • Charlotte on Feb. 21-22 (students should arrive by 5 p.m. on Feb. 21; employer visits will be on Feb. 22)
  • San Francisco / Silicon Valley on March 10-13 (students should arrive by 5 p.m. on March 10; employer visits will be March 11-12)

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.

Questions? Please contact Director of Career Services Jay Eubank at jeubank@email.unc.edu or visit mj.unc.edu/networkingtrips.

Applications are due at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 9
