We connect military vets with seasoned journalists who guide the former service members on their desired career path.
We partner with media outlets to offer opportunities for military veterans to build a portfolio and a network while working in the news industry.
We create opportunities for military veterans to apply and be selected for previously-existing paid internships in partner newsrooms.
CAREER ENHANCING EVENTS
We organize events for veterans to learn skills from established journalists, network with newsroom human resources professionals, and visit media outlets.
MVJ CAREER CENTER
We work with JournalismNext to host the MVJ Career Center, a job listing and search site just for MVJ members.
We offer press passes to support military veteran journalists in their careers. MVJ press passes help identify our members as professional journalists to organizations and sources.
Thanks to support from the Knight Foundation, Craig Newmark Philanthropies and the MacArthur Foundation, we combat the spread of disinformation and extremism in veteran and military communities.
