For Employers

Hiring Medill students and alumni

Medill has a wealth of talented students and alumni in journalism and integrated marketing communications.

  • Undergraduate Students: Students in our undergraduate journalism and IMC Certificate programs are great candidates for internships, student work opportunities and entry-level positions.
  • Master’s Students: Students in our journalism master’s and IMC master’s programs have specialized knowledge in a particular area, and many have previous work experience. Some students are great candidates for student work opportunities and entry- to mid-level positions, while other students have more work experience and are great candidates for mid- to senior-level roles.
  • Alumni: We also accept job postings to help connect alumni with job opportunities. These individuals are many times mid-career to senior-level professionals.

Employers of our graduates tell us that Medill provides students with required training and skills that distinguish them on the job. Our students and alumni are problem-solving, solution-oriented assets for you and your company.

On-campus recruiting

Thank you for your interest in recruiting. Medill has a wealth of talented students and alumni and we are thrilled that you are interested in hiring them. Employers of our graduates tell us Medill provides excellent training for story tellers, innovative communicators, data-driven marketers and skilled writers. Our students and alumni bring value to their employers whether working in journalism, marketing, media, advertising, product management, communications or many other fields. Our graduates are prepared to do this work.

Our approach: Because of COVID-19 limitations, our preference for recruitment is to leverage virtual platforms; however, we are open to discussing an in-person or hybrid option if we can prioritize the health of students, employers and staff.
