This past Friday, the Harvard Crimson was abuzz with employers, graduate schools, and students at the ninth annual Harvard Crimson Journalism and Media Career Fair, co-sponsored by OCS. Students had the opportunity to speak with representatives from over a dozen organizations and discuss entry points into the journalism field, whether through internships or full-time jobs post-graduation.
Especially popular among students were The Huffington Post and The Boston Globe. Attendee Leslie Arffa ’14, who is also an editor for The Crimson, was impressed by the turnout of the fair. “There’s no one way to enter this field, so it was great to talk to employers here and get a sense of what the next steps are,” she said. “I feel more confident applying to internships in this area.”
Following the fair, The Crimson hosted a panel with some of the Nieman Fellows in Adams House, which featured Mary Beth Sheridan, editor at The Washington Post, and Jennifer McDonald, a New York Times Book Review Editor, among others.
