• New ONADC event: 3rd annual Hire These Interns social at the Midlands

    Greetings ONADC friends, Summer intern season is in full sing, and that can only mean one thing: It's time for our annual Hire These Interns social! An event for interns and hiring managers alike, the Hire These Interns social is like speeddating, but for journalism jobs. It's an opportunity for folks who are new to the industry to meet folks who are working in the industry and to share potential job opportunities. Do you need to be an intern or a hiring manager to join this event? No! This is also a great opportunity to network over a beer or cider or your beverage of choice. This year's Hire These Interns event will take place at the Midlands, an excellent venue in Parkview and a short walk from the Green Line (Shaw Metro). See you there! PS. Are you hiring? Drop your job listing in our new Facebook group (see below)! We'll print it out and bring it to the event. ------------------------------------------- SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! We've created a private ONADC Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1099599593584413/ We're always looking for feedback and to hear your ideas for events. Now you can drop those things here! We'll also use it occasionally to alert the community to other resources, from journo events to job opportunities and more. Join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1099599593584413/

  • March 20th - Let's Talk About Media Unionization in 2019

    Join ONADC for a panel about media unionization in 2019. Why are so many newsrooms organizing right now? How does a union drive start— and where does it end? And what's so great about being in a media union, anyway? Whether you're interested in unionizing or skeptical of the labor movement, we've convened a panel to answer your questions. There will be some time to mingle (AKA *networking*), some drinks provided by WGAE, and a short Q&A after our panel. Join us! PANEL: Arsenia Reilly-Collins - WGAE Director of Contract Campaigns Rebekah Entralgo - Reporter at ThinkProgress, WGAE organizer/member Evan Mackinder - Senior Audience Development Editor at Slate, WGAE organizer/member Moderator: Alexia Fernández Campbell, Labor Reporter at Vox

  • Happy Holidays!


    Has this year gotten away from you the way it has from us? Let's talk about it over some drinks as we toast the end of 2018 and new beginnings for 2019!

  • June Meetup at The Atlantic!

    Atlantic Media Company

    Join us at The Atlantic for The Product Manager Panel! Happy summer, ONADC! We're kicking off June with a panel discussion about one of the hottest and most interesting gigs in the online news world: product management. Join us at The Atlantic as we convene a Q&A with three media leaders in the product space. They'll answer common questions (so.. what is a product manager, anyway? And how do you do...that?), and we'll ask them how they got to this point in their careers. And if you're *really* good, maybe they'll also tell us where they think product is going in the next five years. The Atlantic is kind enough to sponsor this event and offer food and beverages. So come hungry, thirsty, and ready to ask questions! Our panelists include: Stacey Goers, Product Manager at NPR Anika Gupta, Senior Product Manager at The Atlantic Heidi Strom-Moon, Product Manager at Slate
