Women in Film & Video DC (WIFV) invites media professionals to register today for the 16th annual Media Job Fair scheduled for Saturday, April 6 from noon to 4 PM. $10 WIFV Members; $20 General Public. RSVP:

As the only job fair of its kind in the mid-Atlantic region, the employment expo is a valuable resource for freelance and full-time candidates at all levels of experience, bringing them (and their résumés) to the attention of those making the hiring decisions—often within days of the event. Last year, 90% of the exhibitors found the staff they were looking for and many companies return year after year because they know the job fair can match them with the most qualified prospects.

Exhibitors at the annual WIFV Media Job Fair include media recruiters, news organizations, production and post-production houses and talent agencies, who are looking for AV techs, editors, motion graphics artists, loggers, producers, production assistants, reporters, sales reps, sound mixers/audio techs, transcribers, translators, videographers, voice talent and more.

Currently, Sapling Pictures, PBS, TeamPeople and Word Wizards are confirmed exhibitors. The exhibitors list will be updated regularly at on March 15.

Melissa Houghton, Executive Director of WIFV, echoed the sentiments of many when she said:

“The DC region has a vibrant, creative community and we are delighted to be able to nurture it and bring all the players together.”
