AAJA Has Journalism Jobs!
Seriously, if you’re still on the fence about coming to our convention Aug. 10-13 in Detroit, what more encouragement do you need? How about knowing you can get your foot in the door at some respected news companies?
Recruiters are on the prowl. Are you in the market?
I’m ready to engage in the 3 D’s: Diversity, Digital, DETROIT!
Join me in Motor City this Aug. 10-13 for the Asian American Journalists Association’s national convention.
Just a few reasons why you won’t want to miss this:
