Career Expo 2017 took place on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at Roone Arledge Auditorium at Columbia University. The Expo showcased the tremendous range of news organizations operating today, from legacy media to digital startups; from topic-focused investigative sites to Spanish-language news organizations looking for bilingual journalists for their newsrooms.

The companies that attend the Expo are seeking to fill full‐time positions, internships, stringer positions and freelance assignments. Employers seek candidates to cover a range of subject areas including health and science, business and economics, investigative journalism, sports, weather, media, technology, politics and government, general assignment, race and justice, metro and community news, arts, culture and entertainment, food, travel and fashion, Jewish issues, international news and more.

The Career Expo happens every spring and is limited to the graduate students of Columbia Journalism School. In 2017, 302 students took part. The Expo is an all-day event, with 20-minute interviews running from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. followed by walk-up interviews until 5 p.m. In the weeks and months following the Expo, dozens of students receive follow‐up interviews and offers for a variety of positions.
