Career Development

WELCOME TO THE OFFICE OF CAREER DEVELOPMENT. 
Our mission is to support our students and alumni in the planning and development of their journalism careers. The Career Expo for our graduating class is the largest journalism fair in the world, and connects our students with a wide range of news employers who are seeking to hire journalists with strong reporting, writing and cutting-edge digital, multi-media and data skills. We offer many services that make our students competitive in the job market, including individual career counseling, sessions with employers, extensive online resources and a full calendar of career-related events. View the most recent Employment Statistics. 

Career Expo 2016 was Sat. April 2, 2016. Many thanks to the 325 editors, producers and hiring managers who made it the biggest journalism job fair in the school's history. We look forward to seeing you next year.
