For Employers

Welcome to the Office of Career Services.

We're here to help you find the best journalists for your news organizations, whether you're looking for newcomers to the profession or seasoned journalists.

Career Expo 2015 is on Saturday, March 28, 2015.  Read about it and register here. 

Our Career Expo is the largest journalism job fair in the country. Be among the 250 newsroom professionals from around the world who come every year to meet, mentor and recruit our students. Last year, editors, producers and hiring managers from 147 media companies attended the Expo and we're expecting a similar capacity crowd in 2015.

Interviews Year Round

If you can't make it to the Expo, or if your post-graduate internship program deadlines pass before the Expo takes place, we welcome you to interview our students on campus at any time during the academic year. To set this up, please contact Izabela Rutkowski at ir2273@columbia.edu.

The Columbia program emphasizes academic disciplines, journalism skills, principles, ethics and issues. Digital media is also at the core of our students' curriculum. You'll meet and interview students specializing in newspaper, magazine, digital media and broadcast news, both radio and television. You will also meet mid-career students specializing in business, politics, health/science, and arts and culture reporting, and others who are studying investigative journalism, religion, education, national and foreign affairs and more.

Learn About Our Programs

The full-time and part-time programs leading to the Master of Science in journalism build upon the student's already strong background in liberal arts, business, law and several other disciplines. The purpose is not simply to train candidates for the first or next job in the field, but to educate them for significant careers. Applicants who have substantial experience as working journalists and who do not seek to concentrate in professional courses may be considered for the Master of Arts Program, concentrating in politics, business & economy, science, or arts & culture. A Doctor of Philosophy degree in Communications is administered by the school in cooperation with various other university departments and divisions, including Political Science, Sociology, and the Business School.
