Aspiring Journalists Spring 2021 series of programming presented by the Washington Press Club Foundation The Washington Press Club Foundation is pleased to host a series of webinars connecting aspiring journalists to Washington, DC reporters, editors and bureau chiefs. These programs are specifically designed for journalism students to gain practical insights into the changing culture and practices of media organizations as preparation for your future job search.

THINK LOCAL : Jumpstart Your Career at Local News Outlets and Trade Publications

Many reporters got their start at local newspapers or trade publications. Some journalists parlay these first jobs into positions at national news desk or with a major network. Others have found growing a life-long career at one of these publications to be rewarding and successful as well as equally valuable to their audience as any national news source. In our third webinar a panel of journalism professionals will share their experiences and offer advice on how these options may be the right fit for your first job in journalism.
