Get In The Game!
2013 Philly Freelancer/ Communications Job Fair

The Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists (PABJ) would like you to participate in this region’s first Freelancer/Communications Job Fair, Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The economy is tough. Times are hard. We want to serve as the portal to help job seekers with their mission in finding employment and assist regional companies in their efforts of finding workers.
Though it could possibly lead to one, the Philly Freelancer/Communications Job Fair is not a fair for full-time employment. However, it’s a great place where job seekers can make a solid start in building their careers; earn college credit; and make extra money.

The fair is also a good recruitment venue rewarding companies with access to applicants to employ in the vast area of communication.
PABJ is proud to partner with like-minded companies that are committed to community engagement. The Philly Freelancer / Communications Job Fair is open to all persons of any ethnic background and/or sexual orientation.

The fair will also include national renowned speakers and information sessions providing tips and information on job readiness.

Some highlights of serving on a committee:

    hold regular meetings as needed (monthly or bi-monthly), can be via conference call or in-person
  • send the PABJ president or secretary information regarding committee meeting times/dates to be included in member outgoing announcements
  • report to the board re: the status of the committees progress, usually monthly and/or if and when applicable
  • if the committee will be producing an event, submit an event sketch AND budget to the board and membership for approval
  • for any committee events, submit a final event report including: a) details on the program/event information that took place AND b) a financial breakdown of the event costs and/or revenue

Please note: no individual member or committee may sign a contract on behalf of PABJ or enter into a contract with any party for PABJ services. Contracts need to come to the PABJ executive board for review and may only be signed by the PABJ president and treasurer.
