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. Register here for upcoming events.

Career Fairs

Trained to listen to diverse voices, build relationships with underrepresented communities, and cover their stories with cultural sensitivity, our students and alumni are uniquely qualified to help steer the future of American newsrooms. Our annual Fall Career Fair is our premier recruiting event, where you can connect with our students, soon-to-be graduates and alumni for internships, fellowships, jobs and freelance opportunities.

In the Fall of 2020, amid the Covid-19 crisis, we held our first Virtual Career Fair with 147 editors and recruiters from 61 news organizations. Employers connected with students and alumni in more than 850 live video interviews including group and 1:1 sessions scheduled in advance. Attendees ranged from legacy media to non-profit news startups.

LinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is an educational platform that offers video courses to teach resume writing, interview and career networking skills. It’s a wonderful resource for members of the Newmark J-School community, and it’s completely free. Click here to log in using your Newmark J-School Google account.
