For Employers

The Office of Career Development can help you find the best journalists for your news organizations, whether you're looking for newcomers to the profession or seasoned journalists.

Services for Employers


JobNews is updated daily and is a no-fee courtesy to media employers. Post jobs and paid internships to reach our current students and alumni of every experience level and skill set. Questions? Contact us at

Academic-Year Internships: Occasionally, students carry out internships during the academic year. These internships must be journalistic in nature and the weekly time commitment is limited. Read our policy.

If you have an internship you're trying to fill, you must indicate if the position is paid or unpaid. The Office of Career Development will not post openings that are primarily administrative and are not newsgathering in nature. We also strongly encourage employers to provide students with at least a stipend. Internships must comply with U.S. Department of Labor regulations

The Journalism School reserves the right to refuse publication of any job notices. We do not accept listings for marketing or public relations internships, nor from non-news media companies seeking candidates for non-journalism positions. We do not accept blind postings. 

If you're seeking undergraduate interns with broader interests, visit Columbia University's 
Center for Career Education or Barnard College's job listing service.

On-Campus Recruiting Year Round

Interview Days: Employers who would like to conduct internship interviews with students in the fall or spring may schedule a visit. We will provide a meeting room, notify students and assist you in scheduling your interviews.  

Meet the Media: If you'd like to come on campus to tell students about your company, we host brown-bag informational sessions with students all year. 

To set up your visit to campus, 
please contact Izabela Rutkowski at
