What we offer our students

Guaranteed Paid Internship

Our students graduate with on-the-job experience thanks to our required summer internship. The school guarantees that every student will be paid, either by the employer or with a stipend from the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism.

Individual Career Advising

We work with you one-on-one to develop a personalized career strategy based on your individual interests, experience and goals. Our counselors help with resumes, cover letters, online portfolios and interview preparation while serving as a resource to help find a summer internship and, later, a job.

Career Development Programs

Students are regularly introduced to working journalists from leading media organizations through information sessions, workshops, practice interview sessions and on-campus recruiting.

Career Fairs

We host three recruiting fairs each year:
Job & Internship Fair in October. Our premiere recruiting event features more than 50 major media organizations.
Latino Job & Internship Fair in November. Bilingual students meet with recruiters from Spanish and Latino-focused media.
Community Media Job & Internship Fair in February. Your opportunity to meet local editors.
