AAJA partners with many journalist organizations to help out professional and soon-to-be professional journalists. in April of last year, we, along with the Radio Television Digital News Association and the Bay Area Black Journalists Association hosted a mixer and portfolio review at UC Berkeley’s School of Journalism.

Participants got to sit one-on-one with professional journalists to discuss their portfolio and network. Here are some shots from the event!

Some news from our friends at the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ): Early Bird Registration for the NAHJ International Training Conference and Career Fair in Miami, FL is this Saturday, March 31.
