Here’s a description from their website:
Want to work in the media industry but not sure what path to take? Unsure of how to best prepare for internships and career opportunities? Feeling uncertain about next steps?
Now in its 36th year, the IRTS Multicultural Career Workshop has earned the reputation of being one of the best ways for BIPOC students and recent grads to get a jump start in their careers, all while interfacing with top media companies for insights & open opportunities.
Since media is ever-evolving and multifaceted, the panel and speaker topics are designed to introduce you to the various positions and opportunities within the industry. Conferees will learn about opportunities in advertising, content creation, digital media, journalism, marketing, media buying and planning, production, research, sales, and many more!
Following the Workshop, you will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive meetings with top media companies to learn about their work, mission, and entry level opportunities. Your resume will also be shared with our corporate partners, to be vetted for current and future internships and full-time positions.
Remember to apply by Nov. 1 if you are interested.
