The Expo showcases the range of news organizations operating today, from legacy media to digital startups; from topic-focused investigative websites to news organizations looking for multilingual journalists for their newsrooms.

Please check the list of employers who attended Virtual Career Expo 2020 and.the list of companies who attended the Career Expo in 2019.

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.

The Career Expo takes place every spring and is limited to the graduating students of Columbia Journalism School. In the spring of 2020, amid the Covid-19 crisis, we held our first Virtual Expo with 232 editors, producers and recruiters from 130 news operations who came to interview, mentor and hire J-School students. Nearly 2,300 video interviews and phone calls took place, with employers and students connecting from locations around the globe.

In 2019, 158 news operations took part in the Career Expo on campus, making it the biggest Expo in the school's history.
